Our 2019 Chardonnay is reflective of the hot and dry season. A more textural wine compared to the previous year, displays notes of tropical fruits and melon. Not overpowered by oak and influenced by partial-malolactic fermentation. This Chardonnay has potential to cellar for 10+ years and is best enjoyed at 7-10 degrees celcius
