If you are looking for a chardonnay that is a good all round crowd pleaser this is it. This is a wine that I keep coming back to as it is remarkably fresh and well structured. Made from Tumbarumba fruit, it is a drier style of chardonnay, with a strong lean almost flinty minerality but also a surprising generousity of fruit character. The toasted honey, apricot and pineapple aromas are well matched by the minerally, vanilla, melon and pineapple flavours. It is a wine that fills the mouth with flavour and lingers.
