Chardonnay McLaren Vale South Australia
Grazing pastures invariably make the most auspicious soils for winegrowing. Hugo owe their splendid provenance to a mixed farm which ran sheep and assorted cattle, dairy and tomatoes, almonds and of course grapes. Chardonnay vineyards came much later, but McLaren Vale, influenced by balmy maritime climes and populated by olive groves, is highly favourable to white grapes. Hugo choose to frame the natural charm of McLaren Vale Chardonnay with a supple touch of oak, allowing the fruit to speak for itself, a ripe peach and nectarine style, perfect for chicken caesar or salade niçoise.
Bright, pale straw hues. Clean lifted fresh fruits, pineapples and mango, herbaceousness and green bean. A dry, smooth, medium bodied palate brimming with an abundance of citrus and fruit salad flavours, cantaloupes, pineapples and mango. Rounded and textured with lively balanced acid, enhanced weight fruit and extended length of flavour.
