The Road Block (formerly Old Block) Chardonnay vineyard tends to produce citrus and grapefruit fruit flavours within a framework of moderate sugar and acid, making for very easy drinking Chardonnay.
The juice was fermented in a blend of old French oak barrels and (17% new oak) with regular battonage (lees stirring). The very spicy Vosges oak has added spice and cloves aromas to the yellow apple and grapefruit.
The palate is soft and gentle, with juicy yellow apple/nectarine flavours, and has a lovely lightness making for an easy drinking style.
Great with pan fried chicken dishes.
Drink now to 2022.
