Tasting Notes

Excellent vineyard conditions for 2009 resulting in an elegant and well balanced Chardonnay with very well integrated wood. Appealing golden straw colour with a nose of toasted farm bread with lashings of butter and zesty lime marmalade. Well balanced, upfront flavours abound and a mid palate of appealing citrus yields to a full, rounded finish.
