There is depth in the colour; a strong personality on the bouquet of pear, melon, grapefuit and yellow fleshed stoned fruits spiced with orange peel zest; the palate makes an immediate impact with yellow peach, nectarine and deftly spiced oak and salivating acidity giving definition and length. A balanced and richly flavoured wine with immediate appeal that should satisfy those who desire chardonnay packed with fruit; the oak present but inconspicuous.
