Pour yourself a glass
Lemon straw in colour. On the nose, there are dominant aromas of citrus as well as honeydew melon and some stone fruit in particular peach and nectarine. In addition there is a hint of struck match which adds complexity and a flinty minerality.
The palate provides underlying savoury notes on toast and brioche as a result of the secondary fermentation and lees contact in the barrel. The palate is concentrated, however the earlier picking has resulted in a wine that remains elegant and focussed, with refreshing acidity and a lingering finish.
The Peagasus Bay Chardonnay has subtle citrus undertones, pair with creamy dishes to balance it out.
