Lismore Estate Chardonnay 2019
Lively in the mouth, with rich and ripe apricot, mandarin, orange zest and white peach.
Lismore Estate's Chardonnay is superbly balanced; rich and complex with real vibrancy to balance. The Overberg region is rapidly earning a reputation for premium, cool climate wines, and the Lismore Chardonnay is no exception. Crafted from grapes planted on slopes at the base of the Riviersonderend Mountain Range, where the combination of elevation and climate make for an extended ripening period. The Chardonnay was aged for 11 months in old French barrels where it gained further texture and weight, whilst retaining fresh acidity.

Complex, expressive nose with hints of smoke, walnut, citrus fruit and just a touch of toffee. Lively in the mouth, with rich and ripe apricot, mandarin, orange zest and white peach. Finishes long and satisfying.
