Good things come to those who wait! With 10+ years in bottle, the time has come to unleash this delightful Chardonnay from Katnook Estate in Coonawarra.
Toasty notes and generous flavours of melon and stonefruit have integrated beautifully with gentle oak adding depth and structure. Whilst in it's youth this wine demonstrated citrus zestiness and light stonefruit, it has now mellowed and offers a more mouth-filling, textural palate that precedes a long, clean finish.
This will delight fans of a fuller-bodied Chardonnay. What's more, the 375ml half bottle size is perfect for ensuring that very little (if any!) escapes the chance to be enjoyed.
Awards and Accolades
"Neatly balanced and assembled, with stone fruit, citrus and melon augmented by gentle oak; has good length." - James Halliday.
From the Winery
Colour :: Brilliant straw yellow.
Nose :: Attractive fresh and fruity aromas of stone fruits with subtle persistent toasty oak notes that add a touch of sophistication.
Palate :: An appealing array of fresh and tantalizing fruit flavours with hints of toasty oak maturation notes highlight a generous palate structure. This wine has a subtle richness with enticing fruit and light oak flavours that are persistent and fresh, a wine for all occasions.
Vintage :: 2006 Coonawarra vintage will be remembered as being very early and for the very low yields. Slightly above average temperatures prevailed during summer and extended into the ripening. The ideal conditions produced grapes that were disease free and in excellent condition. The wines display attractive varietal flavours and palate structures that have subtle fruit richness and a hint of zest.
