Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw with a green tinge.
A vibrant fruit base of nectarine, lemon and pineapple is wrapped in a slow yielding cloak of warm croissant, butter, vanillan and spicy oak aromas. Subtle gamey nuances bring a wild, complex dimension to a classic Margaret River Chardonnay nose.
The palate has a bright citrus fruit entrance with fine natural acidity, building a luscious creamy texture and then a clean dry finish. A stunning orange and almond friand flavour highlights a generous, medium bodied and rewarding palate that will develop greater savoury weight with time in bottle.
