Wowser. A classic Californian Butter Bomb with charred butterscotch, vanilla, lime, tropical fruits and a touch of spice. But all held together by good acidity to keep it fresh and penetrating. Excellent wine for lovers of this big style of Chardonnay.
Fermented and aged for 7 months in French oak, 44% of which was new.
