2012 Winderlea Chardonnay

400 cases produced

Beautiful aromas of pear, peach, citrus, honey and vanilla. The aromatics carry over into the mouth showcasing the pear, stone fruit, golden delicious apples along with layers of clove, cardamom and a creaminess not unlike a crème brulee. This is a complex wine with a silky mouth-feel that also maintains a clean and crisp finish.
