Bottled unfined and unfiltered in December last year, our 2008 Reserve Chardonnay shows fantastic focus, complexity and richness. There is great breadth and allure in the nose of crushed blossoms and stone, lime zest, hazelnut and pear; but the palate takes center stage. Like a French kiss, the wine is sumptuous and silky-rich in texture with creamy minerality and endlessly intriguing notes of bread crust and caramel. The palate retains great focus and structure throughout, as it leads to a long, luxurious finish.
"Complex, rich and full-bodied, with layers of ripe fig, melon, honeysuckle, and spice, unfolding gracefully, gaining depth and nuance and finishing with a cleansing aftertaste. Drink now through 2014. 450 cases made. "
