Notes

Classic Chardonnay. The nose has appealing notes of citrus and white flowers, hints of oatmeal, but no overt oak. The intensity and complexity follows through onto the palate which contains a combination of white peach and mineral flavours. The fine acidity adds poise and focus ensuring a long, elegant finish.
