Oxenberry Farm: the birthplace of McLaren Vale

2009 The Duchess Late Harvest White

$22.00

McLaren Vale – 90% Chardonnay, 10% Muscat of Alexandria

THE WINE

The grapes for this wine were picked a little later than usual, purposely to enable the fruit to ripen for longer and offer more sweetness to the wine, making it quite a unique version to the typical Chardonnay. It bursts with a fresh fruit palate, with aromas of honeysuckle, pears, apples and peaches.
