Chardonnay Margaret River
This product is sold out
A fresh, cool climate style, the use of new oak has added complexity to this stylish and contemporary chardonnay.
The bouquet exhibits hints of peach and citrus and subtle cashew nut and lees characters enhanced by delicate oak use.
The palate is fresh and lively reflecting quality cool-climate vineyards. Honeydew melon and stone-fruit flavours are evident as a young wine which will develop toasty characters as the wine matures.
Ideally suited to fresh shell-fish and grilled seafood or lightly sauced white meats.
Inviting now, the wine will develop further complexity with careful cellaring in the medium-term (2-4 years).

Hand-picked grapes from South West Australian vineyards. Straw-green, partial fermentation and ageing in French oak has worked very well, allowing the white peach and grapefruit flavours to express themselves, good length and balance.
