Thorn-Clarke ‘Sandpiper’ Eden Valley Chardonnay 2015

Chardonnay from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 24-Apr-2016
Bright straw-yellow colour with light, lemon-gold hues, pale edged. The nose is tight and refreshing with uncomplicated, aromatic citrus fruit and yellow stonefruits unfolding to reveal yellow floral and nutty nuances. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses light, aromatic citrus fruit, stonefruit and tropical fruit flavours that form an elegant and tightly bound core. The wine has a light textual line with some grip that guides the palate, and brisk, mouthwatering acidity lends energy, and enhances the lift. The wine flows to a thirst-quenching, zesty finish with some dry textures. This is a crisp, refreshing, citrussy, fruit-focussed Chardonnay with some textural grip and acid energy. Serve as an aperitif and with poultry over the next 3 years. Fruit from the ‘Mount Crawford’ vineyard, Eden Valley, tank fermented to 13.0% alc., a small portion aged in oak, the wine undergoing batonnage for 6 weeks. 16.5/20 Apr 2016 RRP AU$19.00
