Highfield Estate 2012 Chardonnay

Light gold in colour. Grapefruit and nectarine combine with subtle oak, brioche and oatmeal biscuit notes on the nose. The palate is fine and elegant with some creamy and toasty flavours. Oatmeal with layers of citrus and marmalade with refreshing minerality make this a focused and well balanced wine with a long finish.
