    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine is very bright, a polished platinum with green, vivacious hue. There is a complex, appealing nose with quince, citrus and floral notes developing into lemon cream, oatmeal and marzipan richness. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and generous, but still balanced by crisp acidity. There is ripe tropical fruit and creaminess balanced by a pure minerality typical of the variety. The wine has a long, very pleasant lingering finish indicating the richness and persistence of the vintage.

    It is a perfect pairing with grilled fish and red and white meat.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Raised in 60% new oak with 11 months raised on its lees, the 2009 Chardonnay has a very tight bouquet, but there is fine definition here. The palate is well-defined with subtle lime, green apple and apricot flavours. The oak is well-integrated lending the taut finish an attractive creamy veneer. Drink now-2015.
