Other Notes
Complex aromas of lemon sherbert, grapefruit, pear, butterscotch and vanilla shortbread together with underlying flinty notes.

PALATE

Tasting Notes
Still youthful, the intense palate displays a complex array of fruit characters from grapefruit through to white peach and dried pear. Improving as it ages, the charry, toasty oak is integrating beautifully to provide great length and a long mineral finish.

FOOD MATCH

Food Pairing Notes
Intensely flavoured and succulent fish such as Emperor or Snapper. Char-grilled white meat dishes will also pair nicely.

Cellar Potential

Aging
Up to 10 years

Winemaking Notes

Winemaker Notes
The 2012 vintage with its warm ripening period for Chardonnay has produced a fine and elegant wine, displaying the hallmark flavours of lemon pith and grapefruit with hints of pear and white stone fruit. Sensitive winemaking techniques have resulted in a lower alcohol style wine that is restrained, complex and elegant. This is a classic Margaret River Chardonnay that will reward you now or in years to come.
