Wakefield 2016 St Andrews Chardonnay

Silky textured with exceptional length and flavours of peach, nectarine and subtle cashew nuances from quality French oak. Winemaker’s Notes: At release, the wine is a youthful pale straw colour with vibrant green hue to the edges. The wine has ripe white peach aromas along with hints of tropical fruit and subtle creamy oak. Enticing sweet spice and savoury cashew nut from the French oak add complexity to the bouquet. This is a medium-bodied yet sumptuous wine with an enjoyable creaminess to the mid-palate. Flavours of juicy white fleshed stone fruit are evident along with cleansing citrus at the finish which has wonderful persistence and length from the use of quality French oak. Designed to drink superbly well upon release, it will also age gracefully with careful cellaring to 2026, possibly longer.
