Wine Review: This white gold colored Chardonnay from Leeuwin is Excellent. It opens with a lemon, oak, almond and coconut bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slight acidic and nicely coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a very tasty oak infused apple with notes almond and hints of light lemon and a touch of minerality. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Chardonnay is food friendly and would pair perfectly with pan-seared rainbow trout. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A concentrated and vibrant aroma, highlighted by lime curd, juicy pears and lemon flesh in the foreground. Beneath lies subtle complexities of cinnamon quill, black cardamom, amongst toasted hazelnuts and pecans. An open, textural and layered entry continues to a youthful and fine palate with laced acidity and a seamless finish. Cut limes, pears and white peach dominate the palate, woven with savoury almonds, sweet spice and seamless elegant length.
