Review date: September 18, 2016

Wine Review: This white gold colored Chardonnay from Australia opens with a pear and vanilla oak bouquet with a hint of peach. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, displays bright acidity, yet is round and is a little viscous. The flavor profile is a Bosc pear with notes of oak and hints of ginger, lemon and mango. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity linger and last for a while. This Chard is food friendly and would pair well with many chicken dishes. I would pair it with skillet chicken with bacon and white wine sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: On release the wine is a very pale straw colour with a youthful green hue. The wine has intense lifted aromas of melon and white peach with underlying subtle savoury notes from the French oak. The palate delivers well-balanced and evenly distributed fruit flavours of classic melon and peach along with underlying creamy notes from the lees stirring. Texturally, the wine has a retrained, tight structure overall and yet still displays a measure of subtle creaminess to the mid palate and rewards with well integrated oak. The Clare Valley parcel delivers mid palate fleshiness whilst the Margaret River component contributes the restraint and elegance that are typical of this region. Overall, the wine has a great palate line with length which lingers long after the wine is consumed.
