Tasting notes

Precise and incredibly racy with impressive ageing potential. This is the epitome of top-class Chardonnay, and the pride of the estate. The rich yellow gold colour immediately speaks of a wine with depth and substance. On the nose, a wide array of complex aromas delight the senses. Crisp and mineral-driven on the attack leading into an ample, concentrated mid-palate, with lovely textural richness, and delicate, perfectly integrated oak nuances. The length and persistence on the finish is well worthy of its Grand Cru status. Decant one hour before serving.
