Villion Chardonnay 2018
Explosion of seductive aromas of clementine and cinnamon spice on the entry, continuing deliciously to apple crumble and white pear confit, finishing with a sneaky touch of ground almond.
Smooth and silky, with caramel-coated citrus evolving on the palate, prolonging the finish with a hint of roasted almond. Gentle and soft with accommodating mouthfeel and with very long legs.

61% of the wine was matured for 8 months in 300 litres selected French oak barrels. 42% was in new oak. The balance was kept in tank to capture the essential, primary fruit of this high altitude, cool climate Chardonnay.
