De Morgenzon Reserve Chardonnay 2019
Golden with green hues. Hot toasted brioche with zesty marmalade. Backbone of lime and lemongrass with floral notes of honeysuckle and frangipani on the palate. Warm, rich vanilla and a creamy almond finish. 2019 was a cooler vintage than the previous hot and dry years.
