Tasting notes

Great 2018 vintage, precise and incredibly racy with impressive ageing potential. This is the epitome of top-class Chardonnay, and the pride of the estate. 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. A long lingering finish… what a wine! Decant one hour before serving.
