Alcohol/vol 13.5%
Characters of ripe citrus, melon and peach with great minerality, rounded out by well-judged oaking. A very complex wine with a long and creamy finish and a good acid backbone.

An enticing, medium-bodied white, with a lush range of creamed apple, melon and ginger-infused pastry cream gliding on the palate, enlivened by mouthwatering acidity. The finish echoes rich hints of toasted hazelnut and lemon curd. Drink now through 2026. 1,450 cases made, 150 cases imported.

Bursting with oak tones and spices that jump out of the glass along with aromas of apple, pear and white acacia flowers, the 2017 Chardonnay Five Soldiers has an impressive depth that can be sensed on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, the Chardonnay shows an impressive balance with an open-knit palate that delivers pleasure. This wine checks all of the boxes that I would want out of a Chardonnay, with vanilla oak tones, pear cup and lemon panna cotta, ending with a lingering soft, oaky finish. Well done!
