The Eleanor - Chardonnay 2017

Citrus with lanolin, hay and tropical fruits on the bouquet. Also very subtle  toasty, brioche notes. The palate is plush on entry, rich and melded yet shows a fine acidity that provides a perfect balance to the wine. A restrained elegance and lingering aftertaste  completes the wine.
