Natalie's Score: 88/100Fermented in French oak barrels (1/3 new), the wine is aged in barrel for a further seven months before bottling. Dry and full-bodied, it’s packed with apple, pear and citrus fruits that sing in perfect harmony with the spicy, warm oak notes. Toasty rich with warm layers of ripe peach and pear with gorgeous hazelnut and vanilla smoke in the background.
Chardonnay, Barrel Fermented food pairings: grilled salmon, crab and lobster. Wild fowl or turkey. Dishes with cream sauces or mild herb flavours. Brie-type cheeses..
