Warwick Chardonnay 2008

The light green colour shows the fresh and lively attitude of this wine. The bouquet opens with intense French oak aromas, vanilla, coconut and marzipan. Then the Chardonnay fruit flavours start to dominate with tones of green apple citrus and orange peel. The palate is full, round and shows a complexity of fruit, well balanced with the supporting oak flavours. The finish is fresh with the flavours lingering on the palate.
