John Lewis 5 Stars * * * * * "Intense notes of citrus blossom and orange rind on the nose. Engaging and complex palate, full of minerality and lightly toasted almond notes”.

Grape Varietal— Chardonnay

Pale golden straw in colour, this modern Chardonnay lifts you into apple blossom, caramel and honeydew melon. Stonefruit and ripe quince carry onto the palate with bright fruit intensity and modest oak structure. Delicately hints at hazelnut after 9 months of oak maturation in both new, and aged French oak.  

The fruit was picked at optimum ripeness in the cool of the night. Of the free-run juice, a portion was fermented with wild yeast in both new and aged French puncheons and barriques. Another portion was fermented in stainless steel to maintain the lively fresh fruit characters. The wine was matured for 9 months with regular stirring, before final blending and bottling. The result? A well-balanced, elegant modern Chardonnay.
