Oak Valley Beneath the Clouds Chardonnay 2018

This Chardonnay expresses generous stone fruit aromas, such as peach, with oatmeal and flint. This follows on the palate with ruby grapefruit as the dominant character. Lovely dense palate with great balance between the oak and citrus fruits, supported by sweet zesty acidity. This will please those who enjoy wooded, but fresher- styled Chardonnays.

in the cellar : Wild yeast fermentation in older French Oak Barriques results in a wine that has beautiful structure and complexity.
