This Burgundy Chardonnay is available in a shiny and glossy lemon-yellow colour of medium depth, with a couple of gold hues accentuating its shininess.

The nostril is clearly dominated by major fruit aromas, and vibrant ones at that; contemporary melon, pomegranate, peach, pear and apricot. A contact of natural grassiness provides some lifted spiciness, virtually a contact of mintiness. Elderflower and lily give a way of a floral edge to the fragrant profile.

A lovely and upfront fruity/floral chardonnay to odor, wealthy and layered in its fruity expression, but with a sure magnificence and restraint.

The palate is dry and creamy, bursting with pear and peach fruity flavors, however ones that appears to be coated in contemporary cream. Considerably like a contemporary pear and peach fruit salad that may be lined in whipped cream it tastes like. Nice!
