A complex & structured nod to the "old school" Chardonnay. A full, toasty nose, with generous amounts of yellow stone fruits, orange and a little struck match. Vibrant citrus, grapefruit, peach and nectarine flavours, with rich, leesy texture. Fresh acidity with long, lingering nutty oak on the finish. All single estate grown fruit from the Bridge Pa Triangle, fully barrel fermented and stirred on lees. Separate batches were aged for 7 months on 25% new oak, before blending and aged for a further 3 months in barrel, going through 75% malolactic fermentation.
