Chardonnay 2013 Description ...
The fruit for the Reserve Nine Yards Chardonnay is sourced from site specific east facing vineyards, 250-280m above sea level. The grapes are then crushed and pressed, with the juice barrel fermented in French oak, selected from three burgundian cooperages, Damy, Chassin and Rousseau. The wine is further matured in French oak with regular barrel rolling to accentuate the rich, creamy character. Selected from Jordan estate finest Chardonnay vineyards, the Nine Yards is the ultimate expression of the wineries terroir.
Fairley's Wines Tasting Note ...
The Jordan Estate Reserve Nine Yards Chardonnay displays golden yellow in colour with ripe tropical fruit character, integrated spice with sweet butterscotch, locked with citrus on the nose. The palate is full and strong with peach and melon, mouth filling complex spice, laced with lemon and lime, finishing creamy with toasty oak and persistent citrus fruit. Chill well and allow to-open up in the glass, best served with bream fillets, oily fish and creamy chicken dishes. An excellent chardonnay that will age well 5-7 years.
