Description

Vineyard Region: Tasmania
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 12%
Colour: The wine is bright, pale straw in colour with green tinges
Aroma: Zesty melon aromas alongside some riper nectarine
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 a light creamy mayonnaise and capers. It is also very good with ripe camembert and apple segments.

Growing Conditions: Crafted from 100% chardonnay off our estate vineyards in the Tamar Valley and East Coast of Tasmania. The 2020 vintage was low yielding providing excellent fruit intensity.

Winemaker: Tom Wallace

Winemaking notes: Juice was run off skins immediately and 65% was fermented on solids in tank, while 35% in barrel. The wine then spent 6 months in older French oak punchions. The wine was bottled with an alcohol of 12.0%. Vegan-friendly.

Critics’ tasting notes

  1. “54/46% Hazards Vineyard East Coast/Kayena Vineyard Tamar Valley; fermented and aged in oak barrels and stainless steel. Bargain chardonnay of true greatness is increasingly rare. Accurate to both grape and place, this is a bright young thing cut with zesty lemon, crunchy white peach and just the right touch of fleshy fig. Tom Wallace’s sensitivity with woodwork is on grand display, building texture without ever taking the spotlight from that energetic Tasmanian fruit. More integrity, line, length and delicioiusness than you’d expect at this measly price.”
