Tasting Notes

This is the our first release of Chardonnay from this fantastic hillside vineyard on Deasys Road, Pokolbin. The site has North-Westerly sun exposure for late afternoon sun, as well as powdery limestone underneath ‘Terra Rossa’ clay loam soil; the result is flavour, balance and length that marry seamlessly with quality new and one year old French oak. The aromas are bold and potent with expressive nectarine and pineapple, plus musky perfumes of orange blossom enmeshed with leesy/hazelnut richness, well-balanced oak spice and wispy hints of sea-spray. Flavours are silky-soft with powerful citrus fruit that is smooth and vibrant with terrific length, sitting on a leesy cushion of creamy yoghurt and ripe fig flavours. The finish has a touch of subtle wood smoke, fine mandarin and saline dryness. 155 doz made.

Drink: 2019 to 2025.
Food Match: Pan seared scallops, seafood, or poultry.
