An opulent dry styled wine with aromas of sweet pear, honeysuckle and stonefruit overlaying a generous mouth feel of great weight and depth. The creamy texture on the palate from the lees stirring provides the backbone to a long and lingering finish. An elegant wine with a beautiful balance that will reward cellaring up to five years.
Ariel Chardonnay has a distinctive combination of buttery apple and butterscotch characteristics combined with a toasty French oak bouquet and should continue to develop complexity as it ages.
Pale lemon yellow. Minerals, lemons and a hint of classic Riesling hydrocarbon aromas on the nose. Beautiful balance of medium sweetness, playful but structured acidity and low alcohol. Very long finish. Very fine.
An amber Marsala with golden tinges. The nose has complex aroma of raisins, liquorice, dates and vanilla. On the palate is warm, full, elegant with a finish of ripe fruits and raisins.
