Pale straw colour. On the nose aromas of honey and baked apricot are underscored by a hint of vanilla. On the palate flavours of fresh citrus and nectarine are balanced by subtle oak and butterscotch. Medium-full bodied with well integrated acidity and bready yeast lees, this wine will only continue to improve with age. Finely textured with a lingering finish.

The 2013 summer was warmer than average with high sunshine hours and mostly dry conditions and was followed by a classic Marlborough autumn, with warm days and cool nights, producing close to perfect growing conditions. One of the main focuses this season was achieving optimum canopy to crop ratio – often very difficult with Chardonnay. We aimed for enough shading of the fruit bunches to retain natural acidity, balanced with sun exposure to express Isabel’s unique concentration of flavour.
