An exceptional Chardonnay from the inaugural 'Tasmanian Vineyard of the Year' in the Coal River Valley. Cold, but dry and sunny, the site produces fine and precise Chardonnay with a backbone of firm acidity.
On the nose, this wine is intensely aromatic with lemon peel, white blossom, wet stone and a captivating struck match note. Notes of mandarin, white peach and biscuit are complemented by mouthwatering fresh acidity. There is intensity but also plenty of texture and verve, as well as a long finish.
The grapes were all hand picked, whole-bunch pressed, and fermented in French oak barriques. The wine spent nine months in barrel which had a mixture of toast levels and a third of which were new. There was gentle lees stirring as required, then a further two months in tank on lees prior to bottling.
