Gracebrook Stables Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay King Valley Victoria
The original block of Gracebrook Chardonnay was established in 1989, on a fertile river flat paddock that's sited very near the homestead. The first vintage of Chardonnay grapes were sold to Baileys of Glenrowan, subsequent vintages found their way into some of Victoria's most esteemed labels. In 1994 a small batch of estate made Chardonnay was entered in the King Valley Shed Wine Show where it won Best in Class. A superior effort in Chardonnay, from the salubrious cool ripening climes of Victoria's high country.

Rhonda and David Maples know the King Valley very well. Rhonda's parents owned a farm across the road from Gracebrook, and during her holidays she would work in the local vineyards. David's parents also owned dairy and tobacco farms where he acquired the horticultural skills that are invaluable within the vineyard. Growing conditions here are highly favourable but in drier years supplementary water can be applied as the soil moisture drops. Some applications of organic fertilizer through the irrigation system keep the vines looking at their best. Canopy and vineyard work take up most of the available daylight hours. Grapes are exactingly pruned, the aim being to achieve low to average yields of the highest quality.
Straw yellow hues. Strong marmalade oak with fig, grapefruit and cumquat characters. Creamy fruit salad and soft vanillin oak over a well balanced structure, followed by a lingering mineral finish. Desirably fruit driven but with that touch of golden buttery oak, to savour throughout several courses of gourmandize. Convivial to consomme, friendly with fish, perfect with poultry and brilliant with Brûlée.
