Juniper Crossing Chardonnay 2018

It spends 9m in French Oak, of which 15% is new.

Stonefruit, leesy, bready notes; the 2018 guise saw an extra 5m on lees to build complexity. Fairly solid and voluminous wine,  of generosity and substance; Stonefruit, tropical fruit hints, subtle spice. Lees stirring post-ferment has built texture. 

It's of moderate length, more for now I'd suggest, perhaps for short term cellaring only, to 4 years. 91
