Vintages Wine Panel: Barrel fermented and then aged for 12 months on its lees in French barrels (30% new), this Chardonnay was not put through acid-softening malolactic fermentation, thereby retaining the fresh and lively nature of this wine. The aromas suggest toast, apple peel, pineapple, lemon and spices (especially clove). Enjoy this fresh, toasty, fruity wine. My note: Love the smoky hazelnut goodness here with toasted almonds. Some pretty, mouth-watering green apple flavours through the middle. Well-made.

Chardonnay food pairings: pan seared scallops, pasta with a vodka cream sauce, grilled tiger shrimp, chicken skewers.

Amy Arnold rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

The perfect summer Chardonnay. With this toasty nutty flavour and crisp apple tartness this wine makes a great complement to grilled summer dishes. Very well balanced, it will work with appetizers, light grilled fair and even fruit laden desserts such as peach cobbler.
