AMERICA'S #1 SELLING CHARDONNAY.
American's know their stuff when it comes to big bold and buttery Chardonnay. This is no exception. Loaded with fruit flavour and punchy oak this is a classic rendition of of the original Chardonnay style we all love.
The winery writes “Beautifully integrated tropical flavors such as pineapple, mango and papaya, with citrus notes that explode in your mouth. These flavors delicately intertwine with aromas of vanilla and honey to create depth and balance throughout. A hint of toasted oak and butter rounds out the long, lingering finish.”
Sam Kim writes "Gorgeously fruited and immediately appealing, the wine shows golden peach, pineapple, vanilla pod and roasted hazelnut characters with a hint of butterscotch complexity. It's succulent, plump and flavoursome on the palate, delivering creamy mouthfeel and silky texture, leading to a lengthy satisfying finish."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "A warm and welcoming bouquet with aromas of sweet oak and roasted peach, some preserved lemon and vanilla creme-patissiere. On the palate - nutty, creamy textured, packed with flavours of preserved peaches, vanilla and sweet wood. Medium acidity, near full-bodied weight, some softer wood smoke moments, balanced, well made and ready. Totally enjoyable wine with a decent finish with best drinking from today and through 2023."
