If you like you Chardonnay with true expression of fruit then this is the one to love! This wine does not hide behind any oak. Itís a crisp wine that tastes of the succulence and freshness of the grape.
White peach, grapefruit and melon with a hint of pineapple flavours are supported by a soft and textured mouthfeel (achieved through malolactic fermentation). It may have no oak, but this wine has an abundance of character. Drink it with all seafood, delicate white meats and creamy pasta dishes.
This is the wine that started the company, before Sauvignon Blanc became famous! Our style -- ripe and forward with intense stone fruit and nashi pear flavors, coupled with powerful and strong citrus/pink grapefruit characters along with a nuttiness and generous mouth feel.
We seek to produce a wine that expresses the natural Chardonnay fruit characters (not hiding behind oak), being stonefruit and pineapple. The wine undergoes full malolactic fermentation to add roundness and fullness to the wine as well as hazelnut aromas and flavors. We aim for a full-bodied Chardonnay without the encumbrance of oak.
