2006 Craggy Range Chardonnay Les Beaux Cailloux

See wine details

Tasting Notes
Medium straw colour streaked with green. Complex aromatics of citrus blossom, lemon zest, peach kernel with a creamy yeast lees note. The palate has immense power of ripe fruits, finely balanced acidity and a smooth oak background supporting the fruit flavours that provide a richly flavoured wine of great poise and length.

Rich seafood dishes

Recommended Cellaring
