Brilliant, golden straw in color, the 2010 Winderlea Chardonnay shines with a complex blend of aromatics. Citrus pith and wet stone follow through to a palate that is marked by minerality, poached pear, crème brulée, bright lemon and a creamy quality that reinforces subtler notes of toasty brioche. Slightly tropical, the texture and structure of this wine leave a long, perfectly balanced finish.
