On the nose there are aromatic notes of citrus zest and Asian pear, alongside delicate floral hints of star jasmine and honeysuckle. The palate is crisp and round with layers of lemon curd, white nectarine, and lychee fruit. Mouthwatering with a beautiful purity of fruit, this Chardonnay finishes long and clean with a fresh line of acidity. Underlying French oak character offers a light brioche toast while the bâttonage treatment hints at a richer, more textured mouthfeel that is pleasing and inviting. An ideal aperitif on its own, or pair with lighter fare, such as chicken and fish dishes or lemon and white wine pasta sauces.

Mandarin orange, quince and apple blossom with cheese rind, almonds, baking spices and a touch of saline minerality. Medium-bodied with very bright, crisp acidity. Beautiful harmony and freshness to it. Aged for eight months in 10% new French oak barrels. Drink now.

The 2022 Chardonnay Luminus is a rich, dynamic white. Orchard fruit, white flowers, mint and a kiss of French oak are at the front and center. There's terrific texture and depth. Lifted floral overtones add character to the finish.
