|Louise Wilson - ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
From a blend of fruit sourced from the Quarry Road and Robin’s Block vineyards, this luscious, full-bodied Chardonnay offers ripe red apple fruit wrapped in luxurious oak. (Barrel aged and fermented in 20% new French oak for 14 months). Bright acidity keeps the wine from feeling heavy. Generous concentration and length. Perfectly satisfying. Fantastic alongside baked macaroni and cheese, or cozied up to a bowl of corn chowder. Drink to 2015. Tasted Dec 2013.
|The Estate Chardonnay is a combination of fruit from our estate chardonnay vineyards. This marriage of the different terroirs results in a wine of great complexity and balance. A year in French Oak barrels was followed by six months in stainless steel tanks. The estate Chardonnay is a medium bodied chardonnay, with a perfect balance of fruit and structure. The nose is layered, beginning with fresh, crisp lemony citrus and ripe MacIntosh apples. The characteristic minerality of our Estate vineyards is evident, contributing a ‘stoney’ character to the wine. Estate Chardonnay is equally suited to sipping on its own, or being paired with an array of foods.|
