Creamy Californian Chardonnay. The Monterey region in California is one of the worlds best cool-climate wine growing areas. This robust, barrel fermented gem is a reserve style Chardonnay that will instantly appeal to those who like them rich and creamy. Expect to be impressed.

Description

Raymond Chan writes "Full, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, a little lighter edged.  The nose is very full and voluminous with densely packed and harmoniously interwoven aromas of ripe stonefruit and citrus fruits, and savoury tropical fruits melded with a layer of creamy and nutty barrel-ferment notes.  This unfolds plenty of complexing detail.  Medium-full bodied, the palate is softly rich with gently mouthfilling flavours of ripe stonefruits and citrus fruits in an amalgam of creamy barrel-ferment and savoury oak complexities.  This has richness, mouthfeel and presence, balanced by underlying acidity.  The flavours carry to a soft, full, lingering toasty finish.  This is a harmonious and already complex layered Chardonnay with stonefruit, citrus fruit, and creamy, nutty oak flavours.  Match with poultry and pork over the next 3-4 years.  Monterey fruit fully barrel-fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 7 months in 17% new oak, primarily French, undergoing batonnage and 15% MLF"
