Oldenburg Vineyards Chardonnay 2017

The wine has a youthful, yellow-green colour. Aromas of lemon rind and grapefruit prevail on the nose, with wood maturation manifesting as a subtle
caramel flavour. Rich concentration of flavours on the palate, with juiciness, crisp acidity and an enduring finish.
