This barrel-fermented Chardonnay spent 1 year in new oak barrels. It is elegant and open, with medium-high intensity aromatics offering buttery, vanilla, apple, pear, and oak spice notes. It's full-bodied and ripe on the creamy palate with very nice buttery replays on the flavour profile. Very good fruit concentration is supported by juicy acidity. The long finish offers vanilla, spice, and buttery notes. Tasted Jan/2020. Score: 90+ pts
