Very interesting wine, 100% Chardonnay but doesn't taste like one. I was expecting a typical Chard but got somewhere resembling a cross between a Viognier, Riesling and Gruner. Wine spent 3 months in the tank on Viognier lees and another 3 months on oak. Aromas of tropical fruits, notes of honey and sweet spice. On the palate peach and honey flavors, no noticeable oak and low acidity. Full-body, creamy ending.

Such a fantastic Chardonnay! Consistently great with tremendous QPR. Vintage 2017 a smidgen off on the finish compared to the 2016.

Not my preference (this is (virtually) unoaked and almost Sauvignon Blanc like) but for under 10 euro excellent value for money

Many have commented on this as a fabulous value Chardonnay. I would agree. Excellent wine for the money. Loads of fruit and balanced acidity. This was a two night open and it drinks well throughout the whole bottle.

Really good bargain. Very well made, full bodied Chardonnay from the Rousillon, no oak but aged on the lees, apple, lemon, biscuit, some tropical notes.
