The modern style Chardonnay is a wonderful example of the tighter more drinkable cool climate wines that are coming out of Australia.
2017 Royal Melbourne Wine Awards
|Wine Analysis:||Alc/Vol: 13%|
|Colour:||The wine is bright, pale straw in colour with green tinges.|
|Aroma:||Zesty melon aromas alongside some riper yellow peach.|
|Palate:||On the palate it is fresh, youthful and appealing. There are zingy citrus flavours of lemon and grapefruit, with some subtle creaminess complexity, with a zesty tight finish.|
|Peak Drinking:||Until 2023|
Recommended food pairings: Try it with Tasmanian smoked salmon topped with a light creamy mayonnaise and capers. It is also very good with ripe camembert and apple segments.
Growing Conditions: Crafted from 100% Chardonnay predominantly off our estate vineyard on the East Coast of Tasmania. The 2017 vintage was excellent across the board and especially for white varietals.
Winemaker: Tom Wallace
Winemaking notes: Juice was run off skins immediately after pressing and then cold-settled. Some parcels were not settled to leave some solid elements in the fermenting wine. The wine was fermented tank under strict temperature control with a small percentage fermented in older French oak. The wine was bottled with an alcohol of 13.0% a T.A. of 6.4g/l and a pH of 3.4.
