2017 Les Marmitons Gastronomy Chardonnay

This estate-grown, barrel-fermented Chardonnay spent 11 months 'sur lie' in French barriques and underwent malolactic fermentation with monthly lees stirring. The wine appears as a bright straw colour in the glass and the nose offers up ripe pear, apple, Meyer lemon, vanilla and oak flavours. The palate is rich and creamy with more stone fruit flavours and undertones of caramelized brown sugar, nutmeg and a lively acid backbone that structures the wine.
