2016 Oxford Landing Estates Chardonnay
Pale straw green in colour. Aromas of fresh cut peach flesh with accents of wild honey and hints of lemon myrtle. These are supported by fig and cinnamon spice complexities from wild fermentation. Layers of flavour build across the medium bodied palate, and reflect not only the fruit but the use of wild fermentation and ageing on yeast lees. On the palate the slightest hint of oak comes through as a hint of cinnamon and spice, highlighting the complexity derived from barrel matured reserve wine. Balanced acidity gives the wine thrust through to the refreshing finish.
Deliciously accompanies gnocchi with sautéed broad beans, feta, lemon and sage.
Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
