Tasting Note:

Pure and simple pleasure. Not the most complex Chardonnay you will taste but a very thrilling one that is all about clarity of fruit and beauty. Vivid, if very ripe, tropical and stone fruit flavours, a faint touch of salinity keeping the wines focus an definition. Bright, fruity and beautiful. A blend of mixed Chardonnay clones including the famous Mendoza clone. Aged in 5% new oak for 13 months.
