Ripe and opulent, the bouquet shows complex aromas of yellow peach, mango, citrus and subtle nutty characters. It’s full and generously flavoured on the palate with creamy texture and a lengthy finish. A great drinking chardonnay with plenty of attractive flavours. At its best now to 2015. «««« ½ Stars
