Vineyard Reserve Chardonnay

Vineyard Reserve Chardonnay


The Drayton’s Bull Paddock vineyard, planted in 1965, is the basis for this impressive Chardonnay. This wine is light, golden yellow in colour with a tinge of green. The aromas are of fig and tropical fruits with obvious and well-integrated French oak and yeast complexity. The wine has a round palate with layers of flavour and a well structured mouth feel.

A wine ideally suited to poultry, game birds, pork & creamy pasta.
