Eikendal "Janina" Unwooded Chardonnay 2012

Eikendal "Janina" Unwooded Chardonnay 2012

A true unwooded chardonnay. Complex in the sense that nothing is to obvious in the wine. Tight and linear with extreme freshness. Hints of minerality balanced with fresh citrus and straw like flavours. All natural acidity, which gives a long easy finish.
