This Chardonnay expresses the excellent 2013 vintage with ripe pineapple, apple sauce and loads of baking spice on the nose. The palate is full-bodied and creamy with tropical fruit, clove and vanilla flavours.
The grapes for this wine were picked as full bunches, then crushed and destemmed, chilled, and allowed to sit on skins for 12 hours before pressing, which provided lots of perfume, flavour and body. The nose shows classic lychee, rose petal, mandarin orange, melon, honey and spice, while the palate is full and round with a hint of sweetness in the mid-palate.
With fruit sourced from our own estate Teaching Vineyard, this stainless steel tank fermented Chardonnay is clean and vibrant with green apple, lime juice and white grapefruit pith displayed prominently on the nose, with hints of wet limestone and wax lingering in the background. On the palate this wine is medium-bodied, crisp, dry and tightly structured.
This fresh, fruity and aromatic white was fermented in stainless steel tanks and matured on light lees for 7 months before racking, and has retained all of the ripe, vibrant flavours provided by the sunny, warm growing season. The nose offers up ripe stone and tropical fruit flavours, attractive floral notes and a hint of spice, and the palate balances fresh acidity with solid weight and body.
