Brampton Unoaked Chardonnay 2003

Unoaked Chardonnay is a pleasurable drink, since the delicate fruit of this variety is preserved and emphasised. Typical aromas are poached pears, white peach, winter melon and ginger spice. These are complimented by a well constructed palate that is rich and full flavoured.
