Chardonnay 2016

Tasting Notes

Medium straw with green highlights. Varietal and full, stone fruit dominates with underlying green melon, hints of freshly cut grass and spicy oak add interest. The aroma carries through to the palate with intense apricot, nectarine and granny smith apple fruit characters filling the palate. Fruit driven and focused, the fruit gives way to a long crisp finish with the acid providing a fine mineral like texture. 

Winemaking

Fermented and aged in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. A portion of the wine was fermented and aged in French oak puncheons and blended back before bottling.

Cellaring

A fruit driven Rutherglen Chardonnay, from a great vintage for depth of flavour and varietal definition. Enjoy over the coming 2-3 years with crab and avocado salad or sesame chicken with soba noodles. 

"My favoured style where the fruit is dominant, displaying the pure flavours we can achieve with chardonnay fruit grown in the Rutherglen wine region." Colin Campbell
