Stewart Chardonnay 2016


Stewart Chardonnay 2016

Winery Tasting Notes: Aromatics of honey suckle and bees wax on the nose with subtle hints of ginger coming from the oak. Fresh, clean and elegant it seems to float over the pallet finally being drawn down by the crisp acidity. Lemon, lime and white peach dominate the pallet with the oak accenting the flavors not dominating them, giving great length
