COLOUR AND CONDITION:
Light to medium straw hue, with green tints; bright condition.
A nose with a broad array of aromas, including prunes, nectarine, musk, limes, marmalade, roast nuts, vanilla ice-cream and toasty oak. Quite the combination!
The palate is immediately generous, with full body underpinning flavours of limes, peach, apricot and caramel. There is good length and fresh acidity that ensures a zesty lift. The finish has soft tannins and a touch of toasty oak.
At this stage of the discussion, it’s always a dilemma resolving exactly how long a Chardonnay must be cellared for. Our point is the wine has terrific youthful balance and generosity and can be enjoyed now. However, it will certainly age well but will need at least a decade to show its bottle bouquet. When it does the nose will add layers of buttered toast and the structure of the palate will soften, making it much rounder and even more generous.
