The growing season was ideal and resulted in optimally ripe chardonnay with good levels of natural acidity. The naturally low cropping levels from this old variety encourage concentration in the wine. Traditional Burgundian winemaking methods were used, including natural primary and secondary (malo-lactic) fermentations and maturation in a mixture of old and new French oak puncheons. We selected a small number of barrels that best represented the vintage and the vineyard to make this Virtuoso.
The generous aromas and flavours intermingle impressions of citrus and stone fruits, including white peach, nectarine and greengage. These are supported by a complex underlay of barbecued corn, sizzled butter and grilled mushrooms. The palate entry is deceptively light but the wine expands to become mouth filling while retaining elegance and finesse. A spine of lively acidity and minerality draw out its length and savoury aftertaste. While ready to drink on release careful cellaring should bring out many other fascinating nuances and it should live for a decade or more.
Wine is a natural health food
