In the melon & white nectarine zone. There are citrus florals there with sesame seeds, hazelnut and nougat. An underlying hint of toasted white bread! The palate explodes in the front of your mouth first. Bright grapefruit, melon and nectarine fruits. It’s elegant and light on the palate, but with layers of savoury complexity from lees stirring – oatmeal and sunflower seeds. Soft malo creaminess rounds any sharp edges and adds a richness and glycerol mouthfeel. A hint of structural oak keeps it together and persists in the mouth afterwards.

Our “blue label” Chardonnay is typically made in a more “generous” style than the Black Label Chardonnay. Generally made with our later/riper picks of fruit, with a higher pressings & phenolic proportion. It is approachable in its youth & goes beautifully with food.
