Buena Vista Carneros Chardonnay 201
A beautiful pale straw colour in the glass, Buena Vista Carneros Chardonnay offers tropical aromas of mango and pineapple, along with a creamy lemon note. Layered flavours of lemo curd, baked peach and notes of toasted almond, complemented by vanilla and bright acidity. This full-bodied wine has a good richness that coats the palate and leads to a long finish. Delicious and easy to drink.
Classic Californian Chardonnay from four vineyard sites in Carneros. The grapes were whole-cluster pressed, and is fermented in barrel. Matured for nine months in French (18% new French oak) and Hungarian oak barrels, it is bottled unfiltered.
