LE RICHE CHARDONNAY 2015
Hand selected grapes were delicately pressed as whole bunches and then fermented in steel tanks and oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation was inhibited to ensure a firm acidity and retention of the fruit flavours. 50% was aged in 50% new French oak barrels. All the wine was aged on the lees for nine months before bottling.
Aromas of citrus blossom, granadilla and peach. A crisp, lemony freshness is enhanced by balanced lively acidity and a firm structure on the palate. An appetising wine with subtle butterscotch nuances on the finish.
