Chardonnay 2015 Description ...
The parcels of fruit for the La Forge Estate Chardonnay were sourced from 30-year-old vines, with the vineyard located from Limoux in the Languedoc Wine Region, southern France. After the initial fermentation, the parcels of fruit are placed in American and French oak barrels and allowed to ferment for a further 1 month and then aged in the same barrels for a further 4 months, prior to blending and bottling.
Fairley's Wines Tasting Note ...
The La forge White appears golden yellow with slight green hints. The nose is bursting with a mix of tropical fruits, hazelnut and citrus blossom. The palate opens toasty and full with pineapple and apple at the forefront, followed by balanced lime and minerality, finishing lively and nutty, with toasted oak and even more fruit. Please allow to open and would be best consumed 1-4 years. Best served with seafood, roast chicken and foie gras.
