Tasting notes
A charming barrel-aged Chardonnay with a multilevel aromatic profile dominated by the gentle presence of wood. Bright aromas of white peaches, nectarines and exotic fruits, mingle with scents of vanilla and toasty nuances. Rich and luscious with concentrated flavours, excellent density, creamy texture and impressive, lengthy finish.

Food Pairing: This Chardonnay can stand up to rich flavours. Try it with grilled or roast
shellfish like lobster and scallops, fine rich fish and white meat with buttery
sauces. Best served at 50-54 °F.
