Our 2011 CHARDONNAY boasts of apple, pear and pineapple with a nice clean mid pallet of citrus and passionfruit, vanilla and a hint of oak. Crisp with aftertaste of green apples and toffee. The wine leaves long lingering flavors with perfect balance of oak, green apples and vanilla .

Grapes are whole cluster pressed to gently release the virgin and high quality juice. The juice is then fermented in stainless steel tank to continue the delicate preservation of fruit. The wine is then aged in new French oak barrel for two to six weeks just to have a hint of oak. The wine is removed from the barrels and goes back on the tank for another 4 months.
