Tasting Note

A superbly made wine showcasing one of Australia's best producers! This Chardonnay truly demonstates the smbyosis of fruit and oak as they are perfectly in balance in this stunning wine. Less than 2000 bottles produced!

The nose is bursting with grapefruit and white peach, entwined with a nutty oakiness. The palate follows the nose with a superb lingering finish, beautifully balanced with good acidity and a fantastic creamy intensity. Delicious!

Winemaking

Grapes were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. Wild indigenous yeasts used in 500 litre French oak barrels. Matured 8 months in French oak and three months in tank.

Food Recommendation

Would go brilliantly with creamy white meat dished such as a classic Fish Pie, or pork chops in a cream and mustard sauce.

Press

  • Winemaker Sam Connew’s wines are conundrums wrapped in enigmas and it is great fun unravelling them in your glass. I adore my featured Chardonnay with its icy demeanour and formidable hauteur. Coming from a single vineyard in the Coal River Valley area, this is a wine with enviable vital statistics. It is positively crunchy with only 12.5% alcohol and the oak is respectful and subtle, too. Sam uses 500L puncheons and carries out no lees stirring at all and only partial malolactic fermentation. Oak is applied like delicate makeup as opposed to theatre slap. It is this restraint which allows the fruit to shine and shine it does. This is a wine which opens up incrementally over an hour in a glass and I venture that it would continue to do so if I wasn’t so thirsty.

  • ‘Lovely quality of fruit, with greengage and yellow plums, and some lovely flinty smoked character,’ began an enthused team leader Olivier Marie as this was led to the Gold podium, while Chez Bruce’s Adam Michocki called it ‘opulent, with a pronounced nose, creamy and buttery on the palate with some coconut and ripe pineapple, with good potential for ageing’. ‘I would recommend grilled cod or salmon,’ concluded The Sign of the Don’s Carlos Ferreira.
