Straw gold with a green hue. Rich, elegant and restrained. Beautiful fine French oak with citrus, pineapple butterscotch and mealy notes. Underlying hint of minerality and complexity. Complex, rich, citrus and pineapple. Mealy and butterscotch with a hint of French oak adding elegance, refinement and structure. Finishing with an underlying streak of minerality and a hint of lemon pith. Beautiful silken texture to the finish. Spending 12 months in French barrels (22% new), the fruit comes from the Kokako, Ohiti and Askerne Vineyards, Havelock North. This is a beautiful Chardonnay!
