This is actually a good Chardonnay considering that it is in steel casks for a good while. However I must say that I do enjoy the crisp taste that this Chardonnay has.



Tasting Notes:

Enjoy the beautiful straw color and aromas of freshly cut red apple, vanilla and well-integrated oak. There are also enticing aromas of tropical and citrus fruit. The predominant flavors are clean, tart apple with toasty graham and subtle oak. This Chardonnay has a mouth-filling body with a medium-long finish that is very refreshing.
