Don't we all need a little more balance? It's also very true of oak and Chardonnay. We aged some of our Chardonnay in a 2250 litre foudre, essentially a huge oak barrel. Because of the greater volume of wine the French oak is spread more gently. And you get a well-balanced wine that bears no resemblance to those oak bombs of the 80's. Who knew wine could set such a good example of balance? All our winemaking decisions get the same attention to detail as the Chardonnay does. And the results show in every bottle. On that, you have our word.
