2016 Chardonnay Speck Family Reserve

2016 Chardonnay Speck Family Reserve

Regular price $29.95

Description

Hand-picked fruit from our oldest vineyard, where yields were limited to under 2 tonnes per acre, these Chardonnay grapes were whole-cluster pressed and barrel-fermented in French oak. This is a full-bodied wine with intense concentration, yet it displays remarkable finesse and elegance.
