Description

Off Stonecroft's organically managed Gimblett Gravels vineyards... a tiny boutique production of just 3 barrels... that's just 75 dozen. Full malolactic, lees ageing/stirring and just 8 months in French oak barriques with a generous 35% new. The balance between oak, fruit and lees richness is excellent enabling a generously flavoured and complex Chardonnay that finishes freshly... and drinks nicely now through 2023.

Smells

Engaging mix of stone fruit, hazelnut, subtle toast and almond butter.

Tastes

Immediate peach/nectarine fruit richness as it unfolds over the palate with seductive nutty, pastry complexities and gentle buttery notes evolving throughout. The mouth feel and finish are purposeful with the creaminess subsiding into a gentle, fresh tang. Enjoy with richer foods.
