About the Wine
Great combination of lean, cool-climate Chardonnay character with some leesy batonnage-influenced texture. Crystallised lemons, some ginger spice.
Will undoubtedly reveal its full flavour spectrum in with time in the glass, and in the bottle in the cellar. Will be the worth the wait.
Single vineyard wine on Lake Canobolas Road, hence LCR.
