Chardonnay is one of the world’s most popular grape varieties; originally from France’s Burgundy region, today it is planted almost anywhere that wine is produced. Chardonnay has a relatively neutral flavour profile, which allows winemakers to use a variety of skills and techniques to create a wide range of styles from taut and linear to rich and buttery.
Outstanding environmental conditions during the 2015 vintage produced superb fruit for this wonderful wine. Comprising fractions of unoaked, oak matured and a small amount of barrel ferment material, this is a brilliantly complex wine, with the end result displaying apricot, lemon, melon and citrus characters balanced by elegant vanillan oak and soft acidity.
