Wine Review: This terrific pale yellow colored Chardonnay opens with a fragrant lemon bouquet with notes of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, ultra smooth, and well balanced. The flavor profile is a delicious complex blend of green apple and Anjou pear with notes of white pepper. There was also a touch of minerality as well that linger through the finish. The finish is also dry, elegant, and smooth. This classy Chard would match well with grilled rainbow trout with buttered mashed potatoes. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The colour is brilliant green straw. The fresh nose is classical Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay, with intensely lifted aromas of ripe yellow pear skins, the petals of citrus blossom, nectarine and ripe peach accompanied by hints of fig, cashews and roasted pine nuts from barrel maturation on yeast lees with integrated and stylish French oak. The palate displays the mouth filling and intense flavours of fresh ripe pears which is full bodied and incredibly rich intermingling with delicious stone fruit flavours, nectarine and pineapple tart, the middle palate shows richness before turning to an elegance only found in the rarest of years that focus the flavours to a long and persistent finish which is both crisp and appealing.
