Description

Colour: Pale straw yellow

Aroma: Inviting flinty notes mingle with notes of stone fruit, fig, nuts and honey dew melon complimented by a very light hint of creamy butterscotch.

Palate: The ripe fruit has become more evident with age. The ripe fruit carries from front to back palate with well-balanced acidity that It is soft up-front progressing to a quite tactile, flinty finish.

Winemaking: Fermented in a combination of stainless steel vat, new and seasoned French oak this wine was aged on its lees for eight months then matured for another four months prior to bottling.

Cellaring: Orange Chardonnay generally complexes and improves quite dramatically during the first few years of bottle ageing.  This wine has had considerable ageing and is drinking very well now.  It will no doubt continue to develop complexity with more ageing if you would like to see where it will go.
