A pure classic Californian Chardonnay!

More open, enticing and expressive at first approach. Laser-like in its precision. A wine of energy and focus with tropical notes and mouthwatering acidity. Crisp pear, green apple, chamomile and jicama. Saline and fresh, followed by a creamy and savoury mouthfeel. The single vineyard ‘Old Guard’ is a site where the grapes can attain full ripeness, but never lose their electricity. Tense, electric and satisfying. Full of energy. Almost vibrating.

Terroir

Most of the hard work it takes to produce quality wine happens in the vinyard. The soil, the climatic conditions, the aspect, the bodies of water and many more factors, collectively knwon as "terroir" can influence the flavour of wine and give wine distint minerality, depth and character.
