This focused, elegant Chardonnay's aromas feature tangerine, nectarine and almond. On the palate, the rich flavors are complemented by a light touch of toasty oak and refreshing citrus with bright acidity. Incredibly food-friendly, the 2011 Highland Chardonnay is a perfect match with cream-sauced pastas, roast chicken and pork, and seafood.
"Silky and smooth with ripe pear fruit and tangy, juicy acidity; balanced, cohesive and showing notes of sweet vanilla oak; long and stylish.
"The oak in this chardonnay feels nutty and structural rather than overbearing, leaving space for the sweet plumpness of the fruit. The wine finishes with an appetizing citrusy note, like lemon oil.
