Made in small batches, the 70% French clone gives it rich pear and apple, whilst the 30% American clone gives it its fresh melon and citrus acid backbone. The mouth filling texture of our chardonnay fruit is sought after by many winemakers.
Bouquet: Opens with aromas of creamy ripe white nectarines and apples.
Palate: Good round mouthfeel with clean and crunchy flavours from pure stone fruits. A crisp and fresh yet rich chardonnay.
The 2017 vintage was full of challenges: ever changing and cool weather conditions delayed ripening dates on all varieties. This resulted in a longer hang-time for fruit, which ensured the flavour and aroma concentrations were exceptional. Above average winter rainfall left the dams full and soil moisture levels were stable to ensure the best conditions for quality fruit and consistent moderate / cool weather conditions maintained optimum vine balance and excellent colour, flavours and aromas in the grapes.
Food Pairing Notes
A truly versatile wine matching beautifully with classic Australian fish'n chips through to richer spaghetti vongole style dishes.
