Bobar 2018 Royale


Hailing from a small section of the Bobar Chardonnay vineyard at Nenagh Park, a wine of corseted richness.

Such an expansive and tasty bouquet. Aromas of citrus blossom, apple skin, marzipan, sandlewood, white peach and green fig.

The palate is a powerhouse of saline crunch, length and precision, fruit pulp texture with a crystalline ring throughout. A delicious and charismatic wine.

The 2018 vintage

A warm and wet Spring encouraged abundant growth and fantastic fruit set. The season dried out during December and a mild and dry summer followed allowing the vines to develop their crop comfortably, slowly and thoroughly. The 2018 wines have great intensity of flavour with poise and balance.
