Fresh yet elegant this Classic style barrel fermented Chardonnay is rich and complex. After 12 months in French oak barrels, it developed aromas of guava, pineapple, mandarin rind and mango with a hint of flintstone. Generous toasted flavours with an ample mid palate; notes of roasted almonds, vanilla and a whisper of thyme, finishing with silky butter and caramel caracters. Complimenting a wide variety of dishes, from a cheese platter, fish in sauce, spicy chicken, Mexican or elaborated mains.
Optimum drinking time is 2023 to 2026 but will develop fine tertiary aromas beyond 2027. The optimum serving temperature is room temperature or slightly chilled on hot days to 12-14°C.
