Winemaker’s Comments

Due to difficult conditions during the start of the 2019 vintage, it delivered a much smaller crop of Chardonnay. However, this smaller crop was healthy and intensely concentrated. This wine is 100% French oak fermented, but we make use of only a small percentage of new oak, thus ensuring that the oak is beautifully integrated and adds more to the palate weight, than the aroma of the wine.
