CH/18 - Chardonnay

EVER HAVE THAT 'I SHOULD HAVE DONE THIS AGES AGO' FEELING?
WE'RE HAVING IT RIGHT NOW, ABOUT MAKING CHARDONNAY. 
IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING BUT HAS BEEN WORTH THE WAIT. 

It builds from the foundation of those classic cool climate Chardonnay. Acid profile and structure support a bang-pop of grapefruit pith and complex ripe stone fruit. From the immediately powerful fruit weight, you'll be soaking in a rich Chardonnay Chardonnay. No doubting it is a full-bodied style, showing it's complexity, depth balance and integration.
Sorry it has taken us this long...
