Chardonnay 2013 Description ...
The fruit for the Unoaked Chardonnay is sourced from 28 year old vines on south and east facing vineyards, 250-310m above sea level. The grapes are then crushed and pressed, with fermentation carried out in stainless steel. Extended contact on the Lees is allowed over a 4 month period, with occasional stirring adding character and body to the finished wine.
Fairley's Wines Tasting Note ...
The Jordan Estate Unoaked Chardonnay displays golden yellow in colour with ripe stone fruit characters, clean with freshly grated lemon zest, mingled with citrus on the nose. The palate is full and bold with apricot and lime, mouth tingling minerality, finishing full and persistent with lingering citrus fruit. Chill well and allow to-open up in the glass, best served with tapas, seafood and creamy chicken dishes. An excellent chardonnay that will age well 5-7 years.
