Amani Chardonnay 2003

The wine has a medium straw colour with subtle green hues. The aroma reminds of pear, apple and lemon. The oak is well integrated and vanillan in character. On the palate there is a firm citrus acidity with good length. There is some secondary yeasty flavours coming through and a slight dusty oak texture.
