Marisco Vineyards The King's Bastard 2012 Chardonnay

Pale straw with a green - golden hue. A complex and intriguing bouquet displaying ripe stone fruit aromas with oven roasted cashews, grapefruit and oatmeal biscuits complexities. Fruit notes of white fleshed stone fruits and ripe citrus zest lead to the rich creamy mid palate, with oak derived notes of grilled nuts and baking spice. A bright, nervy acid seam combines with a finely textured tannin structure to compliment the richer mouth feel qualities that have resulted from the extended barrel maturation on full lees.
