“The style of Collection 242 is dominated by the Chardonnay varietal which was of exceptional quality in the 2017 vintage.
The perfectly ripe Chardonnays lend the wine its aromas of ripe, sweet fruit complemented by subtle oaky notes. The palate is rich and ripe with a luxurious texture that coats the palate, the signature of an outstanding Chardonnay.
