Chardonnay… you are an agitator, a limelight hugging star of the stage, a sexy rogue… You know-it-all while flexing that salute-to-the-sun. You are a jet setter, a mystery, an A-lister, that queue-jumper we can’t help smiling at… You rock, you ballroom, you disco. You are that all-night party my mother warned me about. You are a secret agent, an irresistible tease, a natural beauty, a homespun hero. You prove the cynics wrong, you create traditions whenever you smile, you work hard, you play hard. You are ageless. I love you.
Hand picked fruit, pressed, settled and racked to barrel for fermentation. Combination of natural yeast and inoculated. Partial malolactic fermentation, 8 months in barrel. Vanilla, butter scotch and toffee character with hints of grape fruit on the nose, with a subtle hint of cinnamon on the finish. The palate gives you citrus fruit with layers of caramel/toffee character – Oak flavours are well rounded and smooth on the finish.
