This Chardonnay was barrel-fermented in mostly used French oak barrels and spent another 9 months in oak for maturation prior to the final blend. It has a medium+ intensity nose of pear, stone fruit, and lime citrus. Oak is mostly a textural element on the medium-full bodied palate with tart citrus, pear, and green apple flavours. Acids are juicy, while the finish length is very good. Tasted Jan/2020.
