Review for the 2015 Chardonnay 2015 ...
The parcels of fruit for the Estate Chardonnay were sourced from Vineyards at Isla De Maipo on limestone soil, the grapes were harvested Mid-March and carefully transported to the winery, hand selected the whole bunches were crushed, cold macerated and fermented in stainless steel, with one third fermented in second and third use Oak barrels. There was no oak ageing.
Tasting Note from Fairley's Wines ...
Beautiful pale gold in colour with shades of green, aromas of tropical fruit characters, mixed with citrus fruit, fresh with lively minerality on the nose. The palate is full and clean with grapefruit and pineapple, persistent mineral notes, finishing dry and elegant, balanced and long. Do not over chill and allow to open up in the glass, consume young 3-4 years. Best served with fish, prawns and salads.
