Utopia 2016 Estate Chardonnay
With bold fruit sourced from our Estate Vineyard, the 2016 vintage is a classic New World Chardonnay. A rich, creamy style with big ripe fruit that ranges from bracing citrus to succulent pineapple and hints of toasted vanilla (thanks to the light, but focused influence of French oak). The acidity is bright and engaging rounding out the creamy textures while highlighting the fruit.
