Rich Chardonnay and white nectarine stone fruit characters on the nose and throughout the entire palate, with an underlying savoury lift from subtle oak usage. The solids addition and higher fermentation temperature, have added texture and an almost French style 'flintiness' to the wine, making it more complex and interesting. No malolactic fermentation has ensured a balanced and tight wine style with lingering fresh acidity that promises to age well.

At bottling the wine was very pale with light green tints. With time we expect that it will develop some pale gold hints. Like a Chameleon!
