This wine saw only minimal cold-stabilization, did NOT undergo heat stabilization and is filtered, but un-fined.
The neutral oak-aged, but racy Chardonnay is embellished by the bright tropical fruit and unique spice of Verdelho. A complex, crisp white wine with great texture and aromatics. Drink now.
