Unoaked Chardonnay 2018
750ml Bottle – 13.4% alc./vol
On the nose are aromas of mandarin orange, ripe apple, pear, orange blossom and fresh fruit pastry. With rich flavours to match the nose supported by a balanced acidity. The finish is lengthy and refreshing with notes of sweet tropical fruit and blossoms.
The 2018 vintage benefited from a very hot summer, leading to ripe fruit with complex flavours. The grapes were harvested in early October with a portion set aside to dry for 1 month in the traditional appassimento method. The wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks.
Drinking beautifully now, this wine will continue at its best through to the year 2022.
Pair the Unoaked Chardonnay with poached salmon and fresh lemon, herb roasted chicken, fish and chips, classic lobster roll, thin crust pizza with goats cheese and caramelized onion, corn on the cob and fresh summer salads.
