Winemaker's Notes

The 2016 Chardonnay is showing tremendously well on release, a slightly more obvious wine than the subtle, restrained 2015. Although not any less acidic than previous vintages, it’s the intensity of flavour that gives balance and drinkability for such a young wine.

The nose is perfectly reminiscent of a Mount Mary Chardonnay, another reminder of how strongly our vineyard exhibits such a consistent flavour profile from vintage to vintage. There are grapefruit and citrus characters on the nose, with some riper pear and stone fruits playing a supporting role.

There is a hint of flint and struck match imparted by the barrel ferment, along with some honey and nut nuances. The French oak used in this wine gives some beautiful toasty, spice complexity. The palate is rich and creamy with perfectly balanced phenolics, giving the wine structure and adding length.
