This pristine Chardonnay offers a fresh bouquet full of citrus, apple, pineapple and pear. The restrained, yet elegant oak influence imparts notes of almond and vanilla while a balanced acidity highlights the citrus notes on the palate. This wine finishes softly, allowing the beautiful balance of fruit and acidity to shine.
