Villion Chardonnay 2019

Tasting Notes

Delicate and seductive entry of dried citrus peel is followed by a quirky, salted apple tart crumble aroma, reflecting the spontaneous fermentation character of this intriguing Chardonnay. Secondary layers of roasted almonds and cinnamon prolong the interest.

Bright and fresh entry with an instant mouth filling sensation which lingers on the aftertaste. Elegant in style, finishes with cinnamon spice flavour and citrus crispness.
