Green-golden in colour with a nose of ripe stone fruit, rockmelon and subtle cream notes. There is an underlying savoury note, which is mirrored on the palate alongside flavours of peach and light cream. Firm acidity aids the long, clean finish.
From the Winery
2015 was another modestly yielding year which, particularly for our chardonnays, produced good flavour intensity.
Whole bunch pressed directly to small, French oak barrels, the wine shows complex aromas of honeydew, butterscotch, peanut brittle and dusty oak. In the mouth there are citrus notes, nuts, creamy oak and fine acidity to a long finish.
Planted in 2000 in the Coal River Valley in Southern Tasmania, Nocton Vineyard sits on ancient layered soils of Jurassic black cracking clays over limestone. In only 40 years, this area has become firmly established as one of Australia’s prestige cool climate wine regions and Nocton, as one of the most significant vineyard sites in the valley, is proud to be a part of that tradition.
