2018 Forgotten Row Chardonnay INSIDERS
The scent brings thoughts of apple crisp, citrus, pear and ginger. A taste finds a supple, luxurious mouthfeel, while flavours suggest apple, kiwi, lime, baking spices and caramel.
Harvested by hand from our Estate and Moira Vineyards on October 8th as grape sugars averaged 22.1° Brix.
