Story: This lightly Chardonnay is made from grapes from quality South Australian vineyards.
Vintage: The 2019 growing season started with mild weather and below average rainfall. Some late spring rain provided a bit of relief from the dry conditions and contributed to lower crops due to the wet weather and windy conditions interfering with fruit set during flowering. A heatwave in January was luckily too early in the ripening cycle to cause any damage to the fruit. This was followed by a very mild and dry finish to the vintage, allowing good hang time and flavour development to the smaller than average crop.
Nose: The nose is very attractive with lively citrus and stone fruit aromas.
Palate: The palate offers a zesty mouthful of limes and lemons with a splash of white peaches, followed by a crisp and lingering finish.
Food Pairings: Try this wine with shellfish such as prawns served on a watercress salad with a mango dressing.
Cellaring: Drink now to 2025
