Wine Enthusiast Review
Years ago, this stainless bottling was one of the first to establish the now common style. It offers aromas of poached pear and guava peel, then finds a tense structure on the palate where warmer tones of papaya, cherimoya, pineapple and honeysuckle combine.
Wine Tasting Notes
Exploding with fresh, crisp fruit, the nose combines tropical pineapple, mango and banana with the citrus notes of lemon, lime and grapefruit - a testament to the diversity of vineyard sources. The palate bursts with a medley of fruit, driven by the crisp Fuji apple character and underlying minerality of the estate grapes. Fresh and vivacious, this wine exhibits a dense mid-palate, proving that with the right grapes and winemaking, Chardonnay does not need oak or malolactic fermentation to shine.
