WINEMAKER'S NOTES 

Fresh with a fine acidity, our Chardonnay has finesse and length of flavour from a great Margaret River vintage. Typical of the fine-fruited style we make, it has some great potential to evolve in the bottle.

 


TASTING NOTES

Colour:  Pale green and luminous.

 

Aroma:  Very fine fruits with hints of cashew. Nice complexity from some French oak with a subtle background of vanillin that adds complexity and depth to the overall impression of a well crafted wine.

 

Palate:  Medium bodied, the wine has fine initial melon flavours that lead to a fruit-intense middle palate with fine oak overtones. The wine is very persistent and structured with a complex citrusy finish.

 

Food matching:  Barramundi with Mango salsa.

 

Cellaring:  Enjoy now or cellar for three to four years.

 

Alcohol:  13.6 % vol.  Standard drinks:  approx 8.0

 

 

 

 

TECHNICAL NOTES

Region:  Margaret River

Vintage notes: The 2016 vintage follows a string of warm and dry vintages for the Margaret River region.  A moderately rapid maturation for whites was broken by a cool change and reds followed with a reasonable pause in intake. As is fairly typical in Margaret River, we were then subjected to an extraordinary Indian summer which pushed the reds to just about perfect maturity.

 

The vintage will be fine and aromatic, scented whites with reds that are deeply coloured with terrific varietal flavour and fruit aromas; it could be a classic, time will tell.

 


Composition: 
100% Chardonnay

Winemaking:  Picked in the cool of night, grapes were cold pressed and the clear juice fermented with natural yeasts. About fifty per cent of the wine received oak treatment before it was assembled, gently fined and matured in our cellars for eight months prior to release.

pH:  3.36

Acidity:  6.5 g/l

Residual sugar:  Dry

Closure:  Screwcap
