Region South Australia - Riverland Estate Grown
The 2017 was wet in February followed by some days of heat wave which then cooled to allow and even ripening period before harvest. Picked in three tranches, this delivered three distinctly different parcels of ripeness and ultimately a layered complexity and acidity. Green apple/citrus peach and tropical diversity in a refreshing and vibrant style.
Pale straw with brilliant edge.
Lifted aromas of citrus and peach with deep notes of vanilla.
Bright and vibrant, with layers of richness and fruit. Ripe peach and zesty citrus fruits are balanced with hints of vanillin oak. Epitomising the quality of our estate vineyards, this 2017 vintage is complex and intriguing.
Food Pairing: Fish, seafood and chicken dishes are perfect matches to this rich Chardonnay. Creamy pasta and soft cheese along with salads of substance such as Caesar and chargrilled chicken.
