Palate Profile

Chardonnay was one of the varietals planted in the Concongella Vineyard in the 1970’s despite the fact that cuttings were extremely hard to come by at the time. The fruit for this wine comes from an old single vineyard located in a cool sheltered site within the Great Western GI. The Chardonnay is aged for 10 months in older French puncheons, with a lot of lees contact, both of which help to develop a rich and complex wine with plenty of texture. The 2021 vintage is beautifully balanced and made in style more akin to the older styles from Best’s.

TASTING NOTES

Colour: White-Gold with a slight green hue.

Bouquet: Attractive flinty aroma, with savoury notes of malt and roasted hazelnuts with an underlying lime citrus.

Palate: Flavours of white-nectarine stone fruit, coupled with a long creamy mid-palate and fresh lime rind acidity. Making this wine complex and enjoyable for all occasions. Best pared with roasted crispy skinned chicken.
