A full-blown oak experience of vanilla and toast with classic pear and butterscotch flavours.
Hand picked then whole bunch pressed. The juice was lightly settled at ambient temperatures. Long, cool fermentation ensued and the resulting wine shows classic pear and butter-scotch characters. Full malolactic fermentation underpinning a full blown oak experience of vanilla and toast drive the wine back to the Chardonnay’s of old.
Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses lively and vibrant flavours of white stonefruits and white florals with subtle nutty notes adding interest. The palate is elegantly concentrated with a well-driven core and line, with fresh acidity enlivening the mouthfeel.
Camembert stuffed chicken breast wrapped in prosciutto with creamy mushroom sauce.
