Notes

Tasting notes:
'Vibrant & pure expression of chardonnay, focused by subtle oaking in classic 17. Apple, pear & nectarine fruit nuances interwoven with chamomile, honey & mineral notes. Natural ferment; 10 months 33% new oak.' – Platters Wine Guide 2019, 5*

'The nose has layers of flowers, minerals and stones, with loads of white nectarine fruit interspersed with the nuttiness of poached pear. The palate is silky yet austere, with a rounder finish that gives its personality but with a clean and long lemon flavoured finish. It shows the epitome of balance with delicate flavours that keep emerging throughout its exceedingly persistent finish.' – Winemaker

Winemakers notes:
The trend seems to be to drink Chardonnay younger these days as wine lovers seem to enjoy the primary fruit aromas of freshly cut pear, mandarin and mineral notes more than the more secondary, developed, aged ones of vanilla beans, honey, anise and honeysuckle blossom. Drink it in the way that you best enjoy it. This Chardonnay will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle ageing and will continue to develop for up to 10 years, if you are disciplined to wait that long. Try it with an Oriental dish like Hokkien noodles with chicken, chilli and bean sprouts, the wine can certainly hold a touch of heat, or more classic with a béarnaise gratinated salmon and a fresh herb salad. This Chardonnay is very versatile, and a simple Camembert and crusty bread will work just as well.
