Aged for 13 months in exclusively Tonnellerie Rousseau the oak is subtle yet present. Predominantly Mendoza grapes, the palate is generous and peachy with a hint of vanilla and citrus peel. TASTING NOTE: A feminine Chardonnay that is star bright and lemon in colour. Varietal fruit characters can still be seen in the wine, whilst secondary (ferment and time in oak) characters are subtle on the nose and palate. Hazelnut, peach and ripe citrus fruits are promised on the nose and realised on the palate. The wine is full bodied with a good core of fruit. The acidity is gentle yet pleasing and tapers out to a long finish. This makes an evocative aperitif that you can take through to dinner. Pair with contemporary bean or nut-based dishes, seafood and any dish built around stone fruit.
