Chardonnay 2017


On the nose aromas of grilled pineapple, sweet papaya and subtle creamy vanilla. The palate shows crisp, balanced acidity backed by lush warm flavours of ripe pineapple, melon, slight vanilla bean and oak notes all leading to a long, creamy finish.

  • Winemaking Notes

    The 2017 vintage was a cooler year, with a warm trend just before harvest allowing the grapes to fully ripen. The grapes were harvested in early October with a portion set aside to dry for 45 days in the traditional appassimento method. The wine was fermented on the skins, pressed, and then aged for 9 months in select French oak barrels. Enjoy now through to the year 2022.

  • Food Paring

    Serve this wine with just a slight chill to achieve balance between the oak and fruit flavours. Pair with dishes such as corn on the cob, lobster, grilled vegetables, roast chicken, mushroom risotto, seared scallops and stuffed pork tenderloin.
