‘A Boy with Fruit’ 2015 Chardonnay is from a single vineyard hillside in Mudgee that is well drained and sun-exposed. The chardonnay was fermented on skins for a week then gently pressed off to finish fermentation in tank and barrel – new and old. Aged on Lees and stirred fortnightly for 18 months.
2015 Chardonnay Tasting Note
This chardonnay was made in a light gentle style to be delicate and food friendly expressing notes of apple, pear drop, and white blossom. The palate is subtle and light but with firm tannins and delicate notes of white fruits, green apple skin, pear drop candy, Chinese yellow plum, earl grey and subtle melon.
The acid on the palate gives a firmness to the palate but makes this chardonnay is to be enjoyed with food. Its subtle flavours are perfect to be enjoyed with foods as it won’t overpower foods but partner them.
