Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia
Biological farming is a passion at Clairault, incorporating a mix of organic and conventional farming techniques which place a strong emphasis on soil biology. The achievement is high quality Chardonnay, such low intervention techniques ensure that only the healthiest grapes are grown, achieving optimum flavour for in the final wine. Fruit is picked early morning and pressed, a portion as bunches, oak fermented in a high proportion of French barriques, partial malolactic and nine months maturation, stirred and topped fortnightly before the final assemblage.
Pale yellow hues. The bouquet offers ripe fruits and white pear, baked nectarine flan, cinnamon, creme brulee and limes. Rich and powerful palate entry, sweet melon fruit surrounded by a fine mesh of oak tannins, a long creamy finish, lingering lime and stone fruit flavours, awash in vibrant natural acid. Perfect match to guinea fowl or marron a la armoricaine.
