    Twenty percent of this wine underwent malolactic fermentation with maturation taking place in French oak, 15% of which was new, for a period of 10 months. Brilliant pale straw colour with greenish tinged edges and a watery hue. Expressive white peach and dried honey aromas emerge from the glass followed by biscuity oak, citrusy nougat and subtle gun flint notes. The mid weighted palate is both vibrant and gently rounded in its feel featuring white peach, nectarine and dried honey flavours over citrusy nougat and infusions of gun flint. Finishes dry and fresh with a long elegant and flavoursome aftertaste.
    Drink over the next 3-4 years.
    Alc. 13%

    Other Reviews….
    Invariably lovely wines from Onannon.
    Nectarine, ripe grapefruit, vanilla wafer biscuit, a little spice and flint. Smooth and even delivery of ripe Chardonnay flavour, a creamy gloss with a ripe citrus tang, a little bit savoury, a little bit fruity, but finds ideal balance for pleasurable drinking. Finish offers watermelon rind and lime zest, and goes pretty long. Drink 2021-2024.
