This Chardonnay is a reflection of its sunny origin, expressing intense aromas of peaches, nectarines, aromatic herbs and biscuit. A light entry of stone fruit becomes a slippery mid-palate that re-focuses to an aromatic and mineral finish. After gentle pressing, juice was barrel fermented with a high solids content in French oak. The wine remained in barrel, 20% of it new, for one year prior to bottling and enjoyed regular lees stirring and about 70% malolactic fermentation.
