A layered, mealy and overall, quite savoury expression of Chardonnay. Some restraint has been shown here with oat, nut, nougat the defining characteristics, rather than riper, tropical fruit. It has been basket pressed and given plenty of lees contact (without much stirring). This has all resulted in a textured wine with great mouthfeel and impressive length. A wine that will live for quite some time. – Ches Cook, FWC.
