Light gold in colour with medium intensity on the nose.

Positives: A very pleasant drinking wine featuring light oak, pineapple, lemon, toffee, orange, banana & apple pie. Medium+ body with good acidity, but still creamy & a long length.

Negatives: Surprising, a little heat coming from the 13.5% alcohol.

Interesting Point: Use the larger Chard glass.

Tasted: 15 June 12

A rich, creamy Chardonnay with lots of tropical fruit: banana, pineapple, and caramel. Plenty of length and controlled acidity.

Tasted April 2013.

This is a well balanced, full bodied, fruit forward chardonnay. Yellow apple and sweet, canned corn are apparent on the nose with ripe, tropical fruit roundness on the palate. Tasted at WWAC Sept 2013.
