  • Foxes Island Chardonnay 2011

An elegant yet powerful wine with ample layers of toasty brioche, apricot, warm, sun-ripe lemon, mealy honeycomb and a sprinkle of white pepper are finely supported by wonderful acidity that finishes long and lovely. A true classic, this wine will continue to age for many years.

Since 1992, Chardonnay has been the leading lady of Foxes Island. This Chardonnay 2011 is their 20th vintage, released with pride and pleasure by the vineyard.
