Colour
Very pale straw with a light green rim

Nose
An amalgam of aromatics working in harmony – primarily yellow stone fruit (nectarine) and honeydew melon with soft pistachio nougat… and enchantingly/unexpectedly from this white grape variety, blueberry bavarois! Barely recognisable savoury French oak imparts a sensitive touch to sign off on a complex and appealing nose.

Palate
A soft and delicate mouth coating/laminated acidity fills out the palate and gently conveys the fermented spoils of Adelaide Hills Chardonnay. Showing more of a citrus edge, with lime splice and finger lime sweetness. Enticing teacake sponge flavours varietally laced with finely grated lemon zest. Already ready, yet no need to hurry – balanced and complete.
