Winemaker’s Note

“This 100% Single Vineyard Chardonnay shows an enticing light gold body colour. There are tantalising and distinctive fruit notes of citrus, green apple and peach stone fruit. Butterscotch and lime notes on the mid-palate follow through to an extended aftertaste of citrus marmalade with a delicate almond finish.” – Johnnie Calitz
