2018 Chardonnay Reserve
This 100% Chardonnay was all estate harvested and then aged in 3rd and 4th fill barrels for 8 months. Being lightly oaked the wine has a delicate nose displaying aromas of citrus, stone fruit, flint, and white flower, with light hints of brioche and caramel. The palate is lively with a bright acidity and flavors of green apple, melon, lemon peel and mandarian orange. Throughout the oak is subtle and plays a supportive role by providing structure and a long finish without dominating the natural flavors of the grape.
This wine is ready to be enjoyed now, but will age for up to 5 years in bottle.
Estate Reserve Label
The gold ribbon Estate Reserve label is an endorsement on our part of what we believe is the best expression of a wine. Our Estate Reserves are always 100% Estate grown and handled with a minimalistic style that reflects the character of the vineyard versus the winemaker. In terms of ageing, our reserves are designed to age and improve with time, generally requiring several years for them to reach their true potential.
