A long dry summer followed by a cool autumn produced this delicious Chardonnay.
Aroma and taste
Medium to full bodied. the palate has good weight with citrus fruit flavours and subtle notes of aromatic oak.
4.5 stars Wine Orbit
The vines are from three different clones, all selected for their premium wine producing qualities: clones 548,809 and 1066. Grown on free draining stony soils. The cropload was light at less than 1kg per vine resulting in intense fruit flavours.
Fruit was pressed straight to oak barrels (30% new) where it spent 18 months. No malolactic fermentation has resulted in a crisp, refreshing style. Just 200 doz. cases were made.
Food and wine matching
The depth of flavour make it a very versatile wine to enjoy with just about any food. It's ideal with roasted white meats such as chicken or turkey, and the citrus flavours mean it would suit seafood.
