A really excellent Chardonnay with just the right mix of fullness, freshness and liveliness. This is mainly due to the unusually moderate aging of an actual Chardonnay! However, the 8 month in partially new and old french barriques still give the wine the desired vanilla notes. Mut most importantly it wont overtone the freshness as well as all other aromatic fruit flavors. The result is enticing and initially awakens a pleasant aroma of citrus, peach and nectarines. On the palate, however, this seems a bit exotic with Nuances of white fruits, pineapple, honey and the familiar vanilla note. This, in turn, is underpinned by a really well-integrated acidic cushion that even makes the wine pop crisply at the end. Accordingly a really successful Chardonnay!
