Description

Heartwood refers to Quercus Robur, better known as French Oak, which is the unsung hero of so many of the world's greatest Chardonnays. While winemakers from Burgundy to Blenheim love talking about the terroir of their vineyard, the difference in oak forests (location, soil, weather, age of tree etc) and the way they are milled and coopered is the focus of this exciting new wine. Crafted from Mendoza clone Chardonnay with 25% new oak, it's a toasty, full-bodied style with a creamy palate that's to die for. Buy as much as you can afford.

Smells

The aromas are incredibly deep and vast with rich notes of Anzac biscuit, toasted nuts, spices and nougat. minutes later, golden peach and pineapple come to the fore.
