Appearance: Vivid pale straw. Aroma: An expressive, complex nose with svelte aromatics – notes of nectarine, peach fuzz, melon and biscuity roasted hazelnut, with subtle smokey, aromas from the finest quality French oak. Palate: The palate is pithy and focused – grapefruit and lime pith , focused with phenolic drive. Not too heavy, not too light with a juicy lime acidity, you can feel the grain of the chardonnay across your tongue. The textural finish has a lingering nuttiness and complexity from the battonage, enhancing the signature length of flavour which shows great persistence. Food ideas: Pappardelle con funghi di bosco (Pappardelle with forest mushrooms). Drink: Now to 2025.
