A sophisticated and sleek Chardonnay that offers aromas of flint, green apple, moderate smoke and subtle vanilla notes. The palate is mid weight with crisp acidity and an almost beeswax texture. Flavours of crushed rock, smoke, orchard fruit and slight baking spice. Lovely option for halibut in a caper-lemon sauce or creamy veal stew.
