A first sniff of the 2016 Reserve Chardonnay delivers stone fruit, lemon and soft florals alongside faint struck match / mineral notes.
The wine has spent 11 months on French oak, imparting beautiful golden colour. The rich, seamless palate combines elegant stonefruit notes with underlying creamy butterscotch flavours. Well-weighted, this Chardonnay offers good length and a lingering, creamy finish.
From the Winery

The wine was fermented on light solids, followed by full malolactic fermentation. The wine was the aged for 11 months in 20% new and seasoned French oak barrels.
