An intense well structured wine, with depth, balance and length. This Chardonnay is more true Burgundy style that has a floral , citrus, and mineral notes in the nose that will open up and show flavors of honeysuckle, apple, pineapple with a hint of vanilla.
The wine was barrel fermented and aged in specially made French oak Burgundy barrels designed for winemaker Mitch, styled Chardonnays exclusively for 12 months, 40% new. There is no malolactic fermentation, so this wine retains its bright natural acidity and as a result will age for many years.
This is designed to age and improve for many years. The fruit should peak in 2017 when it will become richer and silkier in texture through 2020.
