" The 2018 Chardonnay Ladybug was aged for 23 months in French oak, 80% new. It soars out of the glass with vibrant scents of pink grapefruit, pineapple upside-down cake and passion fruit with lovely lemon drop, honeysuckle and mandarin peel hints plus a spicy touch of nutmeg. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is achingly silken, subtly nuanced and yet wonderfully intense, multilayered and long, long, long. Crazy good Chardonnay!"
