Chardonnay from the Trentino Alto Adige region in Italy, this is deep yellow in colour. Soft, refined and restrained, there are notes of hazelnuts, stonefruits, peaches and melon. A flick of oak is evident, but all is well integrated. Keenly balanced, there is also good energy here and elegance over a minerally backing with focus, direction and persistence. Like this a lot – enjoy over the next four to six years.
