The 2015 is yet another beautifully crafted Chardonnay. The wine opens with notes of peach and nectarine notes with hints of melon and pineapple. The influence of oak adds subtle notes of toast and vanilla and enriches the mouthfeel of this delightful wine. We suggest serving this wine between 8 to 10 °C, slightly warmer than you would for most white wines. This is a very versatile food wine and we recommend roasted loin of pork, scallops, clam chowder, white fish dishes and soft creamy cheeses.

Our Chardonnay is a blend of reputable French clones including clones 95, 96, 277 and 809 grown on differing terroirs on our estate. We make this wine using a combination of stainless steel tanks and French oak barrels. In this vintage 70% was kept in stainless tanks and the remainder in quality French oak of differing ages. The portion of barrel fermented wine gives roundness and weight to the palate while the tank portion allows the bright, intense fruit to shine through. Enjoy now until 2020.
