A Lion's family is referred to technically as his "Pride", and generally comprises several females, numerous cubs, and sometimes other males. The Leogate Estate Lion, being the ancient symbol of the Lion Rampant, has an extensive pride, symbolically represented by its three vineyards and a wide array of wine grape varietals as well as blends.
This Leogate Estate Hunter Valley Chardonnay displays melon and grapefruit flavours balanced by fresh acidity. A flavoursome,mid-weighted wine that is well-integrated with French oak creating a complex and refined palate with a creamy texture and a lingering finish.
This is a wine of welcome restraint, displaying aromas of lifted citrus and gooseberry. The palate is juicy, filling the cheeks with passionfruit, grape spice and pine lime notes, finishing with a touch of mineral acidity. A vibrant wine to be enjoyed now and with friends.
