From a selection of original, own-rooted plantings on the Winderlea Vineyard, our Legacy Chardonnay is made up of about 120 vines that have come un-grafted over the years. This late ripening clone, sourced from the Eyrie Vineyards, annually shows delicate characters that can only come from cool climate Chardonnay.
Soft but powerful, the 2016 Legacy Chardonnay shows an abundance of white flowers punctuated by almond nougat that carries from the nose to the palate. Layers of brioche and toasted hazelnut mark a long, silky and mesmerizing finish.
