Delaire Chardonnay 1999

An exceptional Chardonnay from high altitude mountain vineyards. Complexity enhanced by sensitive oaking (9 months barrel matured). Uninhibited pear and apple fruit on the nose with characteristic butterscotch and vanilla aftertaste. A wine to confidently serve with fine food and conversation to appreciative company. Innovative use of barrel rolling for lees contact has resulted in natural Chardonnay fruit being perfectly balanced by oak integration. Barrel matured for 9 months. 20% New, 30% 2nd fill, 30% 3rd fill and 20% unwooded.
