The 2016 Paserene Chardonnay shows a light golden colour with a beautiful green hue that is a tell-tale sign of Elgin fruit. The aromas combine great richness and elegance with abundant aromas of lemon zest, white peach, oatmeal and citrus blossoms. Secondary to that, the wine shows an appealing mineral and layered backbone of crushed oyster shell, chalk and almond paste, parmesan and quince aromas. Gentle oak integration at 30% new super tight grain Burgundian barrels enhance and round out the palate. The mouth-feel is broad and luxurious with incredible length and a vibrant yet polished acidity that suggest the wine will benefit from 2 more years of bottle age.
