Thomson Estate, Lookout Ridge Chardonnay
Lookout Ridge Chardonnay
Glorious vantage lookouts along the cliffs of the beautiful River Murray can be enjoyed near our mature vineyards. Pale straw in colour with aromas of fresh citrus blossom and rich melon, this Chardonnay has a crisp finish.
REGION Riverland, South Australia
TITRATABLE ACIDITY 5.0
FRUIT This Chardonnay was grown on mature vines with an average of 40 years on limestone soils. The result is a wine with lively fruit intensity and good acid balance. Minimal intervention was required in the winery. Separate parcels were left on skins for some time in order to develop the keen tannin structure, then fermented in stainless steel with some French oak influence.
COLOUR Pale straw with lemon yellow tinge
AROMA Freshly cut white peach and jack fruit with perfumed pomelo and citrus blossom highlight this vintage of Chardonnay.
PALATE A refreshing palate of stone fruits and melon with a creamy mouthfeel and lingering finish. Served chilled with chargrilled fish, fresh salads and stir fry dishes.
