Levant Chardonnay displays aromas of orange blossom, frangipani flower, Meyer lemon, grapefruit pith, custard apple and lemon verbena. It has a subtle savoury undercurrent of lovage, flint and some struck match complexity.
The palate is deep, long and flavourful with lemon posset and petrichor undertones washing over a refreshing base of integrated acidity. This wine has an ageing potential of five or more years.
The Chardonnay grapes were whole bunch pressed. The resultant wines were aged on settled lees with minimal stirring, and 100% malolactic fermentation was undertaken on a number of barrels for enhanced richness and complexity.
