This is a multi-dimensional wine distinguished by a remarkable complexity of flavours derived from the fine quality of grapes and good wood. The vineyards were established in 1986 and have produced Chardonnay grapes of exceptional quality year after year due to their perfect location.
Matured in French oak barrels for one year, this elegant wine exudes fine aromas of lime and vanilla rounded off with a nutty, creamy texture on the palate.
The juice is transferred to small French oak barrels and the fermentation process is started with selected cultured yeasts. The juice ferments at 17 – 20°C. The wine is barrel fermented, then matured on the lees in French oak for several months.
Barrel maturation: 12 months.
