75cl - 13.5% - screwcap
A sprightly fresh and fruity Chardonnay produced from grapes grown in vineyards the Riverina area in south-east Australia. The fruit was harvested at optimum ripeness and cool fermented in an ultra-modern winery.
Bright lemon yellow in colour the nose is deliciously enticing with scents of juicy peaches, green melons, lemon zest and creamy toasted almonds. Vibrantly aromatic, the palate offers a slurp of juicy, ripe peaches and mouth-watering nectarines, followed by subtle hints of lemon zest. As this subsides, a rich creamy toasted almond note joins in to provide a long and rounded finish.
This is a rich and well-balanced wine, generous and soft on the palate and very easy drinking.
