Overview

This is a medium-bodied crisp dry white wine with the classic flavour profile sought in great Chardonnays. Yeast flavours feature strongly on the palate, neatly interwoven with the less obvious cedary French oak and the refreshing grapefruit and minerally finish which extends the flavour length and makes a crisp dry style with lingering fruitiness.

Winemaking Notes

The Blue Pyrenees Chardonnay 2009 has been created from four outstanding fruit parcels selected from mature vineyard blocks. The 2008 / 2009 growing season started with good rains which produced healthy vine canopies and decent crop levels, ideal for Chardonnay flavour development, whilst retaining freshness. Harvesting at 12.5 * Beaume sugar level helped produce moderate alcohol levels and a finer style wine than has been made at Blue Pyrenees for some years. 75% per cent of this wine was matured for 12 months in a combination of new to four year old French oak barrels. Traditional and contemporary techniques were used to craft this elegant wine, notably yeast lees stirring or battonage, which has added both complexity and richness to the vineyard derived fruit flavours. The result is a medium-bodied crisp dry white wine with the classic flavour profile sought in great chardonnays.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Blue Pyrenees - then called Chateau Remy - was established in Western Victoria in 1963 by Remy Martin. Remy Martin was committed to discovering the superb sparkling wine potential of the worlds cool climate wine regions and in fact subsequently became the force behind Champagne Houses Krug and Charles Heidsieck. Blue Pyrenees Estate was among the modern Australian wine industry’s first ventures into cool climate viticulture. Ample amounts of sunshine ensure our grapes ripen to full maturity with the heat moderated by altitude vineyards and southerly ocean winds. The climate is warm enough to give concentration and power, yet cool enough to give vibrancy and elegance, resulting in remarkable wines from Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Our Estate is surrounded by the picturesque blue-hued Pyrenees range named for its beauty and similarity to the Pyrenees mountains bordering France and Spain, though some think this explorer’s memory of what constituted a mountain may have been distorted by his long voyage across the flat seas of the Pacific!

French eccentricity was the hallmark of the Estate and the brand’s creation. In 2002 the Estate was purchased by a group of Australian wine-passionate businessmen. Eccentricity, with a New World twist, is guaranteed to continue with a new, innovative management and winemaking team at Blue Pyrenees Estate.
