2022 Colour Series Chardonnay
A golden yellow hue this Chardonnay is medium in body and acidity with a nose of ripe apples, guava, vanilla and brioche which translates on the palate and combines with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel from the oak make this both a complex and moorish wine. With lingering and subtle oak finish thanks to maturation in 20% new French Oak, it drinks well now but promises great ageing potential.

Harvested by hand at dawn, Chardonnay grapes were pressed and the juice then separated into three batches for separate fermentation using different strains of yeast, each imparting a unique aroma and taste profile to add to complexity. Aged on lees in 20% new French Oak barrels for almost 12 months.

A great balance between fresh acids, fruit flavours and savoury elements from the oak, this light-medium bodied Chardonnay can still stand up to some more savoury, creamy and buttery meals including pork, chicken and firm fish, but will also be a great pairing with lighter seafood and vegetable dishes, as well as pesto and fresh herbs.
