Wine Review: This light yellow wine opens with a light oak light like bouquet with hints on melon. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is creamy, nicely balanced, with cantelope and lemon like flavors. The finish is dry and subtle. This wine would pair nicely with chicken and broccoli with nice cream sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Colour is straw with green hues. The wine displays pristine Margaret River Chardonnay fruit, typical of the Leeuwin vineyard. The delicate and well integrated nose displays pungent sweet peach and ripe pear skin and melon flavours which are in harmony with a seamless integration of French oak. These lovely gentle flavours carry over onto the palate which is enhanced with some richness from the lees stirring, providing a creaminess on the palate and pristine peach flavours from the fruit. A wine of medium weight, it has length and structure from the zingy acid on the finish with a harmonious balance between the delicate fruit flavours and the specially selected French oak barriques.
