Matured for 10 months in 40% new French barriques Artus chardonnay is provocative, complex and textural, exuding the seductive spirit of ‘old world’. Its flavours and perfumes are reminiscent of ceme brulee and candid citrus peel with toasty oak in the background. Palate is rich, viscous and creamy. Intensity, layered complexity and balance promise further evolution over next 4-5 years. 13% Alc/Vol

Bruce Dukes at his best, conjuring up the complexity of a top French white burgundy with a base of natural acidity ex relatively low alcohol. The barrel ferment has led to complex, funky nuances, and the texture of the wine builds progressively until it moves through towards the exceptionally long finish and aftertaste.
