Waterford Estate Chardonnay 'Single Vineyard' 2013

Waterford Estate Chardonnay 'Single Vineyard' 2013

Mineral driven aromatics supported by citrus blossoms and lime cordial, as well as soft roasted almond underlying notes originating from subtle oak usage. A lovely restraint, tight structure on the palate with a very well balanced natural acidity on the finish can be credited to the 1988 planted vines. A classic vintage for whites wines which will see this wine age very well.
