From Rhys Vineyards, Alesia 2017 Chardonnay is produced from estate-grown grapes sourced from the Santa Cruz Mountains wine region. Floral on the nose with citrus blossom aromas; dry, medium-bodied with ripe apple, ripe stone fruit and soft orange citrusy flavours elegant on the palate. Beautifully-balanced, drink or hold.
