Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

From the moment your pour the first glass this wine’s richness is evident. The colour is a vibrant deep yellow with a golden luster and sticky alcohol legs.

Aroma

The bouquet displays stone fruit characters of peach and nectarine but the fruitiness is giving way to rich creamy butter with hints of lanolin, hazelnuts and vanilla custard.

Palate

On entry the flavour is predominantly peaches and cream with a twist of lemon butter. Towards the middle palate it builds intensity and body with a mellow nutty texture and subtle vanillin oak. The flavours linger long on the aftertaste with a smooth dry finish. It’s the body weight and warm alcohol that give depth and mouth-feel.

Food Matching

For winter drinking this Chardonnay should be enjoyed lightly chilled. It has the body weight and texture to handle richly flavoured meats and sauces. It’s ideal with BBQ chicken, veal and pork cutlets. Or try it with spicy chicken rissoles or whole baked Barramundi marinated in lemon juice and olive oil … delicious! Serve cool but not too cold to get the full aroma and flavour.

Cellaring Potential

After 48 months maturation this wine has been bottled ready to be enjoyed on release. It’s smooth and mellow now and will cellar for up to another 3-4 years.

Winery Profile

Arrowsmith wines are crafted by winemaker Chris Hill and dedicated to John Fletcher Teague (the Arrowsmith). He was an honoured Australian recognized for his skill, dedication and commitment. He was a man of boundless enthusiasm and genuine integrity.

Hi pioneering work developing advanced stability controls for rocket and missile flight earned him the nickname “Arrowsmith” amongst his peers and colleagues, a reference to “Fletcher” or arrow maker, specifically the skill of crafting the feathers or “fletching” on the arrow shaft to keep it accurate and true.

Arrowsmith wines reflect his quest for constant improvement whilst remaining of consistent quality and refined heritage. Subtle changes to blends, oak handling and grape skin contact during fermentation all influence the final outcome of flavour, texture and structure. Arrowsmith wines are crafted with detailed precision in limited quantities.

The “Silver Label” range is a collection of prestige wines that reflect John Teague’s personal virtues … honest, genuine and true.
