Soho Jonny Chardonnay

A luxurious rich palate of lush stone fruits, toasted hazelnuts & creamy vanillin oak. The wine carries to a lingering finish of toast & butterscotch. Generous Jonny is our strength & motivator extraordinaire.

Ripe, fruity, varietal and generous bouquet with aromas of sweet wite fleshed peach and apple, soft, gentle toast and vanilla scents of oak and a light mineral core. Equally fruity and generous on the palate with flavours that mirror the nose, contrasting acid line and understated oak. Balanced, refreshing and well made with a decent length and finish.
Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
Bright, even pale-yellow with a light gold hue. The nose is soft and elegant, poised aromas of yellow stonefruit, citrus melded with subtle nougat and vanillin. Medium-bodied, nuances of stonefruit entwined with a hint of grapefruit zest, followed by subtle vanilla and almond nougat nuances. The palate is clean and elegant, filled with fruit's purity; a little dusting of oak element dressed the wine in classy beige, reminiscent of almond nougat and vanilla cream. Subtle fine-textured phenolic added to the mouthfeel, followed by a crisp finish. This is an elegant Chardonnay with a clean palate of stonefruit, almond nougat.
