The cool growing region of Carotenes allows us to keep the verve and complexity in our Chardonnay and delivers just the right amount of naturally bright acidity that works well when paired with the finest French oak. Aromas of fresh cantaloupe, Jasmin blossom and pear work well, all underscored by more subtle oak derived notes of brioche and crème brulee. On the palate the character of the wine leans in the Californian direction, with cut melon, a touch of pineapple and Asian pear. This is all tied together by balanced structure and enough oak to add complexity without overwhelming the fruit.

James SucklingPretty and seductive white with sliced ripe apple and lemon rind character. Medium body, hints of cream and a delicious finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chardonnay Mitsuko's Vineyard is scented of bruised apples, baked pears and toast with a waft of nuts. The medium-bodied palate is soft, straightforward and toasty on the finish.
