Yes said the Seal Chardonnay is fermented in French oak (25% new) with a mix of wild and cultured yeast, a small portion underwent mlf, minimal stirring, 10 months maturation. Yet another lovely wine from this vineyard, shepherded through to bottle with a flowing, irresistible energy. White peach, pear, apple and grapefruit are all showing their wares on the long, stylish palate and aftertaste. – Halliday Wine Companion ’18
A rich, resonant yet impeccably sculpted and gracious Chardonnay.
Yes said the Seal Chardonnay has bold aromas of citrus, honeysuckle and peach dominate with a hint of grilled cashew. The sumptuous, cascading palate embraces citrus vitality alongside ripe melon, peach and nougat. Matured in the finest French oak barrels with minimal lees stirring and partial malolactic fermentation, commanding length and precision are signature features of this wine.
