CH/19 - Chardonnay
EVER HAVE THAT 'I SHOULD HAVE DONE THIS AGES AGO' FEELING?
WE'RE FEELING THAT ABOUT MAKING CHARDONNAY.
IT TOOK A DECADE BUT IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT.
Our foundation is classic cool-climate Chardonnay. Acid profile and structure support what is a flamboyant flavour profile. Expect a bang-pop of grapefruit pith and complex ripe stone fruit.
We nurture powerful fruit weight to ensure you'll be soaking in a rich and balanced Chardonnay. No doubting it is a full-bodied style, showing it's complexity, depth balance and integration.
UNABRIEVIATED IN A FOMO WORLD.
WE'RE NOT SHYING AWAY FROM A CLASSIC STYLE; WITH A VINTELOPER TWIST.
