The chardonnays from California that I have tasted often have too much oak influence. Not overdoing the oak adds a wonderful complexity to the wine. This wine a fine example of excellent balance between the fruit and oak.

Straw yellow colour in the glass. Nose offers citrus and floral notes with a hint of vanilla. Medium / full body. Complex taste notes begin with green apple, pear, and a hint if citrus. The vanillin oak influence follows in perfect balance. A citrus finish leads to a long and savoury finish. Delicious
