Wine tasting notes

An elegant wine which opens with luscious aromas of pear and apple complemented by soft notes of honeysuckle and a touch of toasted oak. Well balanced and textured with flavours of melon, lemon and ripe pear culminating in a long, enjoyable finish.

Vinification Notes

The grapes were whole cluster pressed and cool fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged ‘sur lie’ on its fine lees for nine months with periodic lees stirring; in 75% Nevers and Allier French oak barrels, of which 20% were new and 25% in stainless steel. The wine did not go through malolactic fermentation retaining a crisp style which focuses on the inherent qualities of the Chardonnay varietal.
