This ‘once in a while’ Chardonnay in that ‘once in a while’ we discover one that ‘once in a while’ puts the ‘c’ into complete. The nose has grapefruit abundant complimented with granny smith apple and spice. The palate delivers nectarines and white peach, while the hands on winemaking detail, delivers an overall creaminess as a consequence of the part malolactic fermentation. As our Burgundian cousins would say ‘Magnifique’! Leo Daly

Complex aromas of citrus, peach, nectarine, honeydew melon along with soft vanilla oak are evident. The colour is pale straw with some green tones, all leading to a palate that has subtle citrus acid, along with stone fruit and melon with soft oak notes. Complex, balanced and clean with a minerality leading to a fresh clean long finish. Stephen Read
