Great value. Oak is present but relatively restrained to give enough richness and complexity while staying nicely balanced on a vibrant frame.

Pale lemon with a hint of green.

Aromas of acacia, golden delicious apple, lemon, light vanilla, buttered popcorn.

Creamy on the palate, fairly good body with flavours of applesauce, almond, juicy pear. Acid holds the tropical fruit nicely. Nice medium+ finish.

This is a very good value Chardonnay that's mid-weight between stainless steel and (heavier) oak. Most versatile.

Tasted October 2016.
