The 2014 Reserve Chardonnay was grown at Rowlee Vineyard, Orange at 850 metres above sea level. The growing season was warm and dry producing ripe fruit with lovely balance.
Wild fermentation of high-solids juice in top quality French oak barrels has added almond nougat, wax, and chicken stock aromas to the nectarine and citrus fruit core.
The finely honed and elegant palate has fantastic citrussy nectarine flavours together with supporting textural interest.
A beautifully balanced, complex and modern cool-climate Chardonnay style that partners well with coq au vin, roast chicken and veal. Drink now to 2022.
