ADELAIDE HILLS CHARDONNAY 2022
Appearance: Brilliant straw with golden hues.
Nose: Aroma is filled with vibrant nectarine, white peach and melon fruits coupled with roasted hazelnut and oak spice.
Palate: The palate displays citrus fruits, lemon curd and almond meal notes. Lees stirring has added texture and mouthfeel, creating a wine with balance and complexity. The wine shows great fruit length and refined oak. This is a fine and superbly balanced Chardonnay that captures the essence of its cool-climate origin.
About the wine: While this wine is made to enjoy upon release, further maturation over 3 to 7 years will enable it to develop even more complexity, assuming satisfactory cellaring conditions.
