Details

Region
Riverina

Appearance
Pale straw with green hues.

Bouquet
Fresh pear and stone fruit balanced with a hint of French oak.

Palate
Up front fruit sweetness is balanced by a crisp clean finish and the mid palate has a creamy weighted texture gained from lees stirring.

Vintage Conditions
2011 was a very difficult vintage with some of the largest rainfalls recorded in a growing season. However, the summer ripening period was cooler because of this rainfall. This led to long ripening periods and great flavour and acid balance, rarely seen in the Riverina region.

Winemaking
Fruit classification was based on those vineyards showing flavour expression.Healthy berries profiling melon, pineapple and stone fruit were ideal for this wine style. This wine was fermented cool over a two week period. Selected parcels were fermented with the inclusion of American and French oak staves. Once fermentation was complete wines were racked off gross lees and allowed to maturate on fine yeast lees to build structure.

Cellaring
This wine is made for immediate enjoyment however can be cellared for up to two years.

Suggested Cuisine
Enjoy with pan fried fish.

General Characteristics
Medium Dry   Medium Bodied

 

Reviews

UK
"Floral character, tangy fruit, zesty finish."

, The People, Take It Easy Magazine, December 2012

"If Chablis can seem just a bot too lean, savour this general Chardonnay. With notes of smoky oak and stone fruit, it's a ripe, creamy style, delicious cold."

Sarah Jane Evans, BBC Good Food, November 2012
