Natalie's Score: 90/100

A classic Chardonnay with aromas of fresh melon and green apples. Not a lot of oak evident here. Full-bodied but not heavy.

Reserve Chardonnay food pairings: roast chicken.

The Chardonnay is 45% fermented and aged in stainless steel, and the remaining 55% fermented and aged in French oak barrels. The wine was blended in April, and returned to barrels to age sur-lie until bottling in July 2009. The “Stripe Label” signifies a select blend of the vintage which enhances the structure, finesse and elegance with extended bottle ageing prior to release.
The 2008 “Stripe Label” Chardonnay is complex and full-bodied, displaying delicate citrus blossom and fruit flavours, with sweet lemony spice and sur-lie character.
