Our unique "peaches and cream” style Chardonnay has become synonymous with LA FRENZ and has developed a huge following of fans from lovers of Chardonnays to the adamantly "ABC" (anything but chardonnay) wine drinker. It is a delightful wine with a fruit forward structure draped in a beautiful overlay of warm, vanilla notes.
The senses are immediately captured with a lovely nose of ripe white peach, nectarine, melons, vanilla crème fraîche and honeyed oak. To acquire a wine of notable complexity, lush body and with a lingering finish, the free run juice and pressings are fermented separately in both quality French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. In addition, the pressed juice was left on lees for 6 months to further the creaminess on the palate.
Our chardonnay is always easily enjoyed upon release, however it may be carefully cellared for up to 5 years from release. The more complex secondary characteristics of toasty vanilla, peach compote and honey will be highlighted on a richer palate.
