Chardonnay Launceston Tasmania
A superior harvest of Chardonnay, picked off vines grown to the Josef Chromy estate property at Relbia in Tasmania's north. Fruit is pressed directly into oak barrels, without the traditional cold settling or separation of musts. A fully endowed Chardonnay with exquisite barrel ferment and lees stirring richness, a cheesy, complex wine to savour alongside gourmandise truffle risotto, veal and succulent game meats. A creamy, rounded palate of complexity and depth, balanced by fresh crisp natural acid and a lingering finish.
Available in cartons of six
Pale green straw hue. White nectarine nose with hints of toasted crushed nuts, softened by the creaminess of barrel stirring. Fleshy white fruits make immediate impact onto the palate, high acidity balancing to give length and persistence. French oak adds support to the fruit and enriches the structure. A match to full flavoured fish and rich poultry dishes, especially white roasts.
