An attractive, vibrant Chardonnay with a lovely mix of ripe peach and grapefruit flavours together with savoury yeast lees and subtle oak. A wine that’s full of charm with a silken texture and exquisite balance of fruit and alcohol sweetness balanced by crisp acidity.
Tasted: Mar 2005 Closure: S'cap Average price: NZD $20 (~USD $17)
