    Elegant and textural, the palate boasts characters of white peach, pear and lemon barley. Subtle French oak spice is enhanced by creamy barrel fermentation notes and mineral slate. Juicy citrus acidity gives the palate balance and length.
  • Nose Nose
    Attractive characters of pear and white peach are complemented by notes of nougat and lemon barley. Subtle French oak and hints of mineral slate are evident in the background.
  • Appearance Appearance
    Pale straw with traces of green.

Sommelier Review

“The 2012 Coldstream Hills Chardonnay opens with a nose of white peaches drizzled with acacia honey, clotted cream and scones with just a touch of allspice. Light to medium-bodied, it is on the delicate side of Chardonnay but shows good intensity and poise before finishing with decent length. Drink it now.”
