Chardonnay 2020 ART SERIES

Chardonnay 2020 ART SERIES

This wine is pale gold in the glass. The colour will deepen slightly with time in a cool cellar. Aromatically complex; notes of crème brulee, roasted nuts and bold oak, intermingling with stone fruit and citrus highlights. The palate is rich and full bodied. The oak takes centre stage but is beautifully balanced by bright acidity and creamy texture. This leads to a finish that lasts and lasts. This wine pairs beautifully with roast chicken, roast potatoes and a fresh green salad.

REVIEWS

Sam Kim, Wine Orbit — 5 stars, 94 /100 points. Wonderfully complex and engaging, the wine shows golden peach, vanilla, cedar and brioche characters on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate offering terrific power as well as refinement and texture. It's multi layered and delectably styled.
