Deconstructed Old School Aussie Chard - Reconstructed for our time. Like a wife: Complex, brooding and you need to think about how you got involved in it, yet it's obvious why you keep going back for more. Oak. Malolactic ferment, some straw colour, gun-smoke. Serious. Oh and Flavour... Lots of Flavour.
