We love a 375ml bottle. No wastage when you just want a small glass each with dinner, or when you simply can't agree on what to open - pick one each!
Light straw yellow. Fruit driven Chardonnay aromas of stylish peach and nectarine, along with zesty grapefruit. A subtle toastiness from oak adds a lovely layer of complexity. An appealing array of flavours with peach, pineapple, hints of citrus and a touch of toast highlighted on the palate. A lush fruit filled burst with soft tannins and a long clean finish with a strong acidity at the end. Yum.
Accolades and Awards:
Campbell Mattinson: It’s good to see someone still making this style of chardonnay. Bang for buck. Peach, oak-spice, butter and green melon. All mid-palate and not a lot of length, but its sweet sauciness has appeal. Tightens well through the finish. Can’t knock it.
From the Winery: Vintage: 2010 Coonawarra vintage will be remembered as one of the earliest and also for being amongst the best for many a year. The weather conditions - below average rainfall and above average temperatures - in Coonawarra leading up to harvest, were conducive to an early start to picking and this has followed through to excellent quality in the fruit, including this Chardonnay.
The Chardonnay wines have attractive ripe varietal expression showing the vibrant stone fruit flavours expected of them.
Oak Maturation :: A small proportion of this wine was barrel fermented then matured on yeast lees for approximately six months in predominantly American oak barrels.
Food Matching :: Strongly-flavoured fish such as rockling or barramundi, lightly seasoned and pan-fried with a selection of your favourite sides would be delightful with this Chardonnay. Marinade tofu in soy, ginger, cumin and sesame oil then cook into a stir-fry with steaming hokkien noodles, shitake mushrooms and baby bok choy for a delicious vegetarian alternative.
