Chardonnay is sourced from good growers who are fastidious about their canopy management, a practice that's necessary to produce high quality harvests from the rich and fertile volcanic soils. Moderate crop levels encourage grapes to ripen early and evenly, retaining fresh natural acidity. Harvested early in the vintage, grapes are gently handled and treated to a long, cool vinification for retention of flavour and to keep phenolics at bay, the majority in fermenters without any malolactic. Some components are filled to oak for a course of ferments in seasoned French barriques.
Pale straw with bright green hues. Fresh aromas of lemon and lime zest, ripe peach notes are overlaid by nougat and spice. The palate is generously layered with flavours of green tropical fruits and lime curd, creamily textured with just a hint of French oak, balanced by a refreshing citrus acidity at the finish.
