Edgebaston Chardonnay 2008

The wine shows an elegant minerality with lime-citrus, sourdough and cinnamon flavours. The tight minerality keeps a wonderful acid grip on the palate showing good ageing potential. A floral note of wild , white flowers such as frangipani and almond blossom is obvious on the front of the nose and follows through the palate.
