2011 Reserve Chardonnay

2011 Reserve Chardonnay

Product Description

Hand picked in the cool of the morning. Citrus and pear superimpose a mealy complexity and subtle spicey vanilla aromas. A superb mid-palate with intense flavours, curtailed by a fine line of natural acidity and a dry mineral finish. 96 points: James Halliday 2015 Wine Companion. Best of Best by Variety
