Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale yellow straw with bright highlights.

Aroma

Fresh mango and melon with hints of nougat and spicy oak.

Palate

Lush peach and melon flavours, a full mid-palate and a refreshing finish.

Food Matching

Roast chicken & season vegetables tossed in herb butter.

Vineyard

Grapes for this wine are predominantly from two Central Victorian regions - Goulbunr Valley and Heathcote. A major portion of Goulburn Valley fruit is gron on the estate vineyard at Mitchelton located in the Nagambie Lakes sub-region. The Heathcote component contributes to the wine's core paalte of subtle stone fruit flavours. This flavour attribute is derived from well-drained deep red, ironstone and jasper-quartz soils on the flats below an ancient Cambian geological, feature known as the Camelback Ridge.

Winemaking Note

Gentle handling of hte grapes during the crushing and pressing and a cool fermentation temperature ensured that pure Chardonnay flavours and aromas were retained. The major portion of this wine was aged in older French oak barriques, a minor portion in newer oak. A small portion was retained in stainless steel vessels to enhance the wine's fresh fruity lift. The wine was kept on lees for 10 months, then blended and bottled.
