More about this wine

In the nose, exotic aromas of pineapple and tropical flowers. In the mouth, yellow plums, a hint of pomegranate and whispers of aniseed. Fine minerality emerging in the finish. A perfect fish and seafood wine.

Ben says (January 2017): Once again, maturity allows wine to develop and change is such a way asto create a new wine! This is a deep golden wine which has lost a lot of what might be called typical Chardonnay characteristics. Instead of the pineapple and tropical flowers there are some lovely aromas of stone fruits, particularly peach. In the mouth, the flavours of peach dominate completely. I can not find any pomegranate or aniseed at all even when squinting and thinking hard!

Because of, rather than despite, the changes, I heartily recommend drinking this wine now as it may have gone in the next couple of years.
