2015 Eagles Rest 'Maluna' Chardonnay

2015 Eagles Rest 'Maluna' Chardonnay

Crafted from the winemakers selection of fruit on the Maluna vineyard. While all blocks are considered, the inexplicably consistent Orange Tree Hill usually takes centre stage. Like our other 2015 Chardonnay, this wine is cool climate in style. Carefully integrated oak has added complexity without detracting from the blocks fruit purity and power. Drinking beautifully now, but still with many years ahead of it.
