Speaking Rock 2012 Chardonnay
A beautifully balanced wine with fragrances of lively lemon zest, nectarine and pineapple introduce this Chardonnay. A vivid mouth-feel reveals the delicate balance of earthy minerals, citrus and tropical fruit. Sur lies aging imparts this crisp, clean wine with an exquisitely long finish.
Half-oaked. After pressing, juices are divided and half ages in a stainless steel barrel while the other half ages in a French oak barrel. After nine months of aging, the wine is then blended together to produce a half-oaked wine, which allows the fruit to shine through but also for the buttery finish provided by the oak.
