Light green in colour with fresh and fruit driven aromas of citrus and nectarine with subtle creamy notes. The palate is likewise fruit-driven with excellent purity. Stone fruits and citrus flavours build to a pleasingly round mouth-feel before being carried to a dry finish by fresh acidity. A very well balanced and attractive Chardonnay that will be a versatile companion to a wide range of seafood and white meats.
From the Winery
Sourced from established vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. The sheltered aspect and cold Autumn nights, courtesy of these higher altitude sites, combine to ensure the retention of natural acidity in the elegant fruit harvested.
Fruit is harvested during the early morning hours to retain freshness and partially whole bunch pressed. A fast and precise vinification in stainless steel with minimal oxygen contact maximizes fruit expression and aromatics. A cool fermentation (15 to 18 degrees) is undertaken in stainless steel tanks before maturation on lees for four months. A portion of the blend is aged in two and three year old French oak to increase complexity and mouthfeel.
Bleeding Heart Wine was born from a shared passion in the wines and vineyards of South Australia. The ancient soils and moderate climate create rich and full bodied wines that are incredibly satisfying. Few that experience the lifestyle of food and wine ot the beautiful landscape could argue that is not better a bleeding heart than none at all.
