Review Date : 19-Dec-2022
Bright, even, pale straw yellow with depth. This has a lush, full bouquet packed with aromas of pineapple, ripe citrus melded with cream brulee, spice and toasted pinenut. Full-bodied, aromas of pineapple and melon enriched by candied walnut, butterscotch, cream brulee and spice. The palate is mouth-filling and full, with oak-derived richness; ripe fruit supported by juicy acidity and liveliness. This Chardonnay shows lush, ripe fruit with balanced oak details and fresh acid. Match with roasted chicken and grilled fish over the next 3-4 years. fruit from Ashwood Estate Vineyard, Back Ormond Road, clone 95, gentle pressed fruit, fermented with a high percentage of solids in a mix of French oak barrels (35% new) and a small tank with fire-toasted French oak staves, 45% underwent MLF. 13% alc. 17.5/20 pts (88 pts) Dec 2022 RRP $22
