Light gold in colour with medium+ intensity. On the nose I got clove, guava, lemon tart, caramelized sugar, pineapple, peach, pear and light minerality. On the taste, dry, good acidity, balanced, very long length (I stopped timing after 2 minutes) & full body. I tasted guava, lemon meringue, peach, caramelized sugar (slightly burnt), pineapple, limestone, med toast and butter. Overall a medium+ complex wine and an amazing value. This is a Best Buy wine.

Medium body, apricot, melon, lime, toast and nutty. Not great complexity here, fresh acidity. Short to medium finish with melon flavour. Simple Chardonnay nothing special.
