2019 SINGLE BLOCK B3 CHARDONNAY

$75.00 inc GST

1995 planting of P58 Chardonnay on the flats of the property. Whole bunch pressed and full solid native ferment in 60% new French Oak for 10 months. No fining. Light Golden straw yellow/green in colour.

The bouquet is overt with suggestions of burnt fig, almond croissant, crème brûlée, and wind fall peaches. The palate is jammed with juicy peach, pear, ripe cantaloupe and vanilla bean. The wine is especially generous across the entire palate and dances with flesh, creaminess and minerality. With wonderful poise lent from bright natural acidity the wine has an impressively long, flinty, almost caramelised finish. Enjoy now with double cream soft cheese or cellar medium to long term for added complexity to accompany Pavlova.
