To appreciate the aroma and taste of this Chardonnay, let’s escape for a moment.Imagine standing in a luscious green tropical forest. At a clearing in the trees, a small river drops off a rocky edge into an inviting water hole a few meters below you. More than merely crystal waters, it’s filled with peach, lemon and citrus fruits. The spray from the waterfall drifts in the air like a fine spritz. Are you ready to jump? Come on – three, two, one, jump!
