The Eikendal Chardonnay 2015 is a serious and elegantly crafted wine.
On the nose, it has subtle oak aromas, and prominent lemon, honeysuckle and pear flavours, with lovely, crisp mineral notes.
The fruit flavours follow through on to the palate, with a rich and generous citrus finish. The Chardonnay has a great mouthfeel, and long, lingering aftertaste.
The fine complexity added by oak maturation has created a wine of distinction.
