Winemaker's Notes:

An attractive colour of pale straw with lemon / lime hues. This Chardonnay has lifted aromas of grapefruits, crisp pears, grilled nuts and toast. A crisp wine with a star fruit and lemon infused palate with a creamy mouth feel imparted by lees stirring in high quality French oak barriques. It is a wine to be enjoyed early for its vibrant fruit, however will cellar for up to 3 years.
