Expert Reviews

Bright green-straw; an interesting wine; even though unoaked, has some complexity, perhaps lees-derived; this in turn ties up the finish to some degree.Rating 87 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale straw with subtle green hues.

Aroma

Aromas of fragrant lime and lemon peel, a hint of cantaloupe and an undertone chalky, stony note greeting the nose.

Palate

The palate is succulent, supple and juicy with those citrus flavours driving through the core and finishing with a lick of fresh acid and savoury minerality.

Cellaring Potential

Drink now or stash a few away for a rainy day in a few years time.

Winemaking Notes

Chardonnay processing is done cold for maximum retention of fruit flavours; the juice is quickly drained/pressed from the skins and pulp. A clean juice is racked off lees for fermentation and inoculated with a neutral strain of yeast that ferments efficiently to dryness at temperatures in the the range of 12-15 °C in stainless steel. Once fermented, the wine spent another ten months upon yeast lees with occasional stirring to provide extra palate texture and additional flinty lees derived flavours. The wine sees no oak and is bottled after cold/heat stabilisation and membrane filtration at the end of January 2010.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Plantagenet takes its name not only from its home, but also from its heritage. In 1968 in a stroke of serendipity English migrant Tony Smith, himself a descendent of the Plantagenet's, invested his small inheritance in a farm called Bouverie in Western Australia’s Plantagenet Shire.

He first planted Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon followed by Riesling three years later.

The first wines from these young vines were tight and lean and showed the elegant spice and fruit characters for which this area was to become known.
