Overview

Complex yet fine, our 2011 Chardonnay is all about generous, ripe nectarine and melon fruit flavours balanced by fresh natural acid. The fruit was harvested early for freshness and careful barrel fermentation/maturation ensures oak plays a subtle support role. Long in mineral-like flavour. This is the sort of Chardonnay we seek to make….. and drink.

Expert Reviews

“Scott Ireland is making some cracking gear at Provenance. Intent, balance and fruit purity mark all of the wines. The regional focus is on Geelong, Ballarat and Henty. The 2011 Golden Plains Chardonnay is fine-boned and floral. The flavours centre around lime and nectarine with subtle leesy funk and spiced almond oak in the background. A herbal thread is woven through the wine and it concludes with schist and seashell notes. A finessed and precise expression of the variety.” 91+ Good – Very Good Jeremy Pringle – Wine will eat itself October 26, 2012

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Brilliant pale straw with a green hue.

Aroma

The very fine and elegant nose displays floral and citrus aromas coupled with a subtle almond-like oak character. A creamy yeast lees influence adds further complex character to the bouquet.

Palate

True to the fruit aromas the flavours are pretty and fresh. Citrus and white peach characters are beautifully balanced leading to a rich yet fine, integrated long finish. A pristine, generously flavoured fine wine.

Food Matching

White fleshed fish, risotto
