True to the vintage the 2012 Chardonnay yields an excellent fruit profile, with fine structure and excellent potential for ageing. On the nose there are intriguing yet assertive aromas of fresh limes, white pear with hints of butterscotch. The palate has a seductively smooth entry, quickly revealing a captivating minerality and layered, textured complexity which is enhanced by the subtlest expression of wood. It is a wine with impressive poise and balance with an enduring finish. Although drinking exceptionally well at present, it has all the hallmarks and pedigree to reward careful and patient maturation.
