Winery Tasting Notes
Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’12 has a bright lemon colour and green lights.
Characters of fresh pineapple, peach, roasted nuts and French vanilla.
The palate shows great intensity with perfectly ripe stonefruit flavours over a background of rich, salted shortbread and a long, concentrated, very fine finish.
Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’12 is delicious on its own, or a wonderful partner for both simply prepared and fuller flavoured seafood, and white meat dishes.
Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’12 will continue to evolve in bottle for 2-4 years from harvest.
