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.

Unabbreviated in a FOMO world. We're not shying away from a classic style; with a Vinteloper twist.
