Straightforward and juicy, the 2020 1685 Series Chardonnay begins with sweet aromas of pomaceous and citrus tones with hints of vanilla and cardamom. Medium-bodied, the wine is balanced and shows subtle white peach and pineapple flavors before concluding with a fresh, uncomplicated finish. For the price, this performs well. 2022-2024
Big on aroma and flavours, combining a lemony, cinnamon, nutmeg nose with zesty citrus and ripe tropical fruit on the palate. Well balanced, the soft, buttery character adds to the complexity and roundness of the wine.
