Bannockburn, Chardonnay, 2019

Tasting Note:

Fruity with a flinty note. Showing both citrus and tropical notes but with bite. Crunchy nectarine flavours combine beautifully with clean, clear sicilian lemons. A really lovely, fresh but ripe acidity, a touch of stone and a faint but not disturbing spice note together with a lick of pineapple. Engaging, smooth rich fruit garlanded by a bright, persistent freshness. A blend of mixed Chardonnay clones including the famous Mendoza clone. Aged in 5% new oak for 13 months.
