Balfour's first still Chardonnay since 2015. A real winemakers wine, using grapes from the marvellous 2018 vintage and careful use of new oak to create a wine which showcases the huge potential for English still wines.

Colour: Bright straw yellow

Nose: Clean, lightly herbal

Palate: A fresh palate with hints of grapefruit, green apple and cinnamon. Skilful use of oak has produced a wine of great intensity, complexity and purity.

Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay

Alcohol: 12%

Ageing Potential: This wine is best enjoyed over the next 3-5 years but will age elegantly beyond that.

Food Pairings: Oysters, pan fried fish and green salad.
