Grand Barossa Eden Valley Chardonnay 2010
Tasting Notes

Lifted aromas of nectarine, peach and pear are accompanied by citrus fruits on the palate with an extensive finish framed by subtle vanilla notes and a hint of spice from maturation with French oak.

Winemaking

Picked early in the morning, the fruit was delivered cool to the winery. Gentle pressing to minimise phenolics and cold settling preceeded a long, cool fermentation averaging 14°C. A small portion (5%) of the Chardonnay was fermented in seasoned French oak to give added complexity and structure to the wine.

The developed colour is appropriate for a chardonnay ready and needing to be consumed by the end of 2013. The oak influence is subtle, the palate led by melon and stone fruit flavours.
