This versatile Chardonnay is warm and creamy. It is brightly flavored with elements of ripe apples, melons, pears, soft lemons, and vanilla. This wine demonstrates good balance, sufficient sugars, and nice flavors that are not too weak or overbearing. Our Aurelia says it reminds her of a warm toasted waffle with crystallized sugar.

Slightly fruity the flavors with a creamy mouth feel are dominated by notes of black currants, gooseberries citrus and tropical fruits. Delicate floral notes with subtle hints of bitterness.
