Year two of French only oak ageing continues to give this label a leg up over a lot of competitors in the local chardonnay market. It also adds another dimension to the flavour profile. The mix of new and older barriques, puncheons, and a foudre, adds another layer of complexity and its not vanilla and butter. The vines range from one to three decades on the estate vineyard. Fresh and leesy with lemon curd, pear, and hazelnuts, all mixed with creamy, attractive textures. Love the value too.
