Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW
Background

The 2016 vintage has produced some excellent white wines in the Adelaide Hills. We combined the positive characteristics of two parcels of Chardonnay from different parts of the Adelaide Hills – Charleston and Gumeracha - to produce this complete wine. One was barrel-fermented in French oak for complexity and texture, the other fermented in tank for freshness and purity. Both wines underwent a partial malolactic fermentation to soften the acidity and give more roundness.


Tasting Notes

Colour
Pale yellow

Nose
White peach, honeydew melon and a hint of grassiness

Structure / Palate
Medium body. Ripe stonefruit flavours with subtle oak overtones. Light texture on the finish with balanced acidity.

This is a well-balanced, ‘modern’ style of Chardonnay, with fresh flavours and understated oak. It will develop further flavour and complexity through at least 2018. It complements a wide range of courses, particularly chicken dishes, seafood and salads.
