This month we are very pleased to be releasing two Chardonnay wines from the 2016 vintage – our 2016 limited release Reserve Chardonnay and also our 2016 Estate Chardonnay!
2016 Reserve Chardonnay A gold medal winner at the 2018 Tasmanian Wine Show, also awarded 96 points by wine writer Huon Hooke, who ranked it as the second best Chardonnay from Tasmania in the 2016 vintage (there are 43 wines in this category, so we were very pleased with this result!). This limited release wine shows complex lemon, grapefruit, almond, oatmeal and spicy French oak flavours balanced by crisp, bright acidity. Food matches would include slow cooked Scottsdale pork shoulder. More details of this wine (including the full review from Huon Hooke as well as other accolades) can be found here.
2016 Estate Chardonnay This wine is also a gold medal winner, at the 2017 Australian Cool Climate Wine Show and was also awarded 94 points by Wine Showcase Magazine earlier this year. This premium cool climate Chardonnay showcases a medley of grapefruit, citrus, vanilla and integrated French oak flavours, finishing with intensity and power. You can enjoy this wine now and it will also reward careful cellaring. Food matches would include herb roasted Marion Bay chicken. More details of this wine can be found here.
You can purchase these wines via our secure online shop here – remember that you can mix and match and the minimum order is only 6 bottles.
