TASTING NOTES

 

Colour:  Intense green with some lemon.

 

Aroma:  Full and rich with a perfume of cashew nut and Chardonnay fruit aromas that are complemented with integrated high quality French oak.

 

Palate:  A very fine palate, with plenty of length and persistence.  This is a classical Chardonnay and with further cellaring will reward those with patience. Fruit flavour dominance will see a fine Chardonnay expression in the future.

 

Food matching:  Duck or goose is a fine accompaniment.

 

Cellaring:  Five years

 

 

Alcohol:  12.75%     Standard drinks:  7.5
 

TECHNICAL NOTES

 

Region:  Margaret River

 

Vintage notes:  The 2016 vintage for whites reflects in many ways our experience with previous vintages. Again, a very cool start to the season and benign conditions will see this as one of the better white vintages in the region.

 

 

 

Composition:  100% Chardonnay

 

Winemaking:   The Chardonnay grapes were selected for intensity of flavour with the objective to make a wine that is fine, persistent and with the potential to bottle age over the medium term. Whole bunch pressed, the wine is fine and long. Hand stirring of barrels has allowed the wine to evolve as necessary before the final decision to assemble the wine for bottling.

 

pH:  3.35

 

Acidity:  6.70 g/l

 

Residual sugar:  Dry

 

Closure:  Screwcap
