This crisp and zesty Chardonnay from our East Coast Hazard vineyard, is a perfect representation of the Tasmanian cool climate terroir.

Description

Vineyard Region: Tasmania
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 2024

Recommended food pairings: Try it with Tasmanian smoked salmon topped with light creamy mayonnaise and capers. It is also very good with ripe camembert and apple segments.

Growing Conditions: The 2018 vintage was excellent across the board and especially for white varietals. Crafted from 100% Chardonnay predominantly off our estate vineyard on the East Coast of Tasmania. Chardonnay favours cool climate growing conditions due to a long ripening season which helps retain high levels of natural acidity. 

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 at cool temperatures in its tank and a small amount of oak influence helping to build texture to the palate. The wine was bottled with an alcohol of 13.0% a T.A. of 6.6 g/l and a pH of 3.34.
