COLOUR: Pale straw NOSE: The bouquet of this elegant, yet striking Chardonnay offers both precise purity and complexity. Fresh pear puree, white-fleshed stone fruits and zesty grapefruit are foiled by underlying secondary characters of nougat, wafers and oatmeal with the subtle lifted frangipani floral hints in the background. PALATE: The palate is medium bodied and tightly coiled, again displaying pears, white stone fruits and a pithy grapefruit zestiness. The wine offers a fineboned structure complemented by a lovely creamy mouthfeel derived from lees stirring. Refined yet complex, the intense fruit and racy acidity combine to focus the wine perfectly to a lingering saline moreish finish.
