This beautifully aromatic wine draws you in with tantalizing notes of

Mandarin orange, citrus blossom, lychee and guava, as well as hints of

brioche, nutmeg, clove and vanilla bean. On the palate it is crisp and vibrant,

with creamy textural undercurrents that accentuate the lush layers of lemon

custard and tropical fruit, with notions of jasmine and melted butter lingering

throughout the long, supple finish.

The 2021 Chardonnay Calesa Vineyard, matured in 35% new French oak, features intense lemon jelly and nectarine aromas on the nose with wafts of chalk and beeswax. The medium-bodied palate is wonderfully satiny and concentrated, its ripe fruit complemented by energetic acidity and well-integrated oak spices, and it boasts a lengthy, mouth-coating finish with soaring citrus flavors. 1,210 cases were made.
