2017 Cross Road ChardonnayWhite Wine
This third edition of our Chardonnay is a well-balanced, medium bodied wine that displays some beautiful cool-climate Chardonnay characteristics. On the nose there are intense flavours of apricot and peach, balanced with orange blossoms and a touch of lemon zest. A round, full mouth feel with hints of cedary oak and raw almonds create a well-balanced lively, lingering finish. Drink now or over the next 7 years.
The wine is 100% fermented in French Oak barrels. After ferment, it was aged on lees in barrel for 6 months and then racked. The wine will age for four months in steel tank on fine lees, before bottling.
