    STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

    To say this Chardonnay gets the full treatment would be an understatement. Traditionally made with 8 months ageing in oak, 10 months on the lees and whole-bunch fermented using wild yeasts there is a lot to appreciate here. This is a very modern interpretation of “Buttery Chardonnay”. Big on flavour with a framework of well-cut acidity running through it, keeping it fresh and balanced. Supremely impressive
