The Road Block (formerly Old Block) Chardonnay vineyard tends to produce yellow apple, citrus, 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 (15% new oak) with regular battonage (lees stirring) adding subtle almond pastry aromas to the yellow apple/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 2023.
