La Petite Ferme Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2016

On the nose it has a warm inviting beurre noizette (burnt butter) and roasted almonds from the time spent in the wood. Fresh ripe pineapple and green flavours follows onto the palate. A well balanced and complex wine combining fresh citrus and classic rich buttery Chardonnay aromas.
