Bright and clear with hints of gold.
White fruits and hints of melon.
Not very full flavoured but the typical Mosquito Hill honey dew melon in evidence. No noticeable wood flavours, so quite an elegant style.
As with all our chardonnay’s this will easily improve in the bottle for seven or so years and then maintain excellent drinking for 5-7 years more.
The wine was made oxidatively, so no sulphur was added until the end of the alcoholic fermentation. The grapes were pressed and the juice was cooled in tank for 48 hours and then racked to French oak barrels, with about 20% being new barrels.
This is typical of the slightly lighter (lower in alcohol) style we are now making, with much less overt oak influence.
Clear, pale lemon.
This wine smells like fresh-cut grass, mouth-watering pineapple sorbet and juicy green apples.
It lands on the palate with a lime soda effervescence followed by guava and apple juice characters.

Drinking wonderfully now, with strong ageing potential over the next 5-7 years.

White peach and fresh green apple along with Jasmin, Crème Brulee and a hint of spice from French oak.Mouth
Yellow peach and stone fruits are carried across the palate by a mouth-watering acid drive. A hint of lemon pith phenolics provides the wine with lovely texture.
