If you have been missing your unashamedly big and gutsy Chardonnays, boy do we have something for you. This is the Chardonnay you love and remember, rich and complex, yet oh so elegant. Ripe stone fruits lead the charge on the nose, leading to intense notes of toasty brioche, honey, spice and cashew nut. 10 months in French oak (a mixture of new and used) adds the backbone and structure to the wine, while a delicate white nectarine-like acidity wafts gently across the palate and keeps everything in perfect balance. The finish is long and intense.
