 Wine Storage



Ripe and stylish, with a core of fig and pear notes that builds slowly, picking up flashes of hazelnut and heather on the suave finish... 10,000 cases made..’ – Wine Spectator (February 2011), 89/100

The 2009 Lesca Chardonnay shows more mineralite on the nose with attractive, Burgundy-like leesy scents. The palate is crisp and pithy on the entry with vibrant orange peel, dried apricot and vanilla flavours, racy acidity and a slightly abrupt, dry finish. Drink now-2016.’ Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (August 2011), 88/100
