Terra Felix Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Goulburn Victoria
The best Chardonnay always exhibit conspicuous balance. Those fortunate enough to have countenanced the wines of Tallarook will understand why Terra Felix are so well received. The objective is to create a robust style of Chardonnay which can be enjoyed in its youth, without evolving too rapidly while in bottle. A measure of oak is perceptible yet inseparable from the fruit, characters derived from vinification contribute complexity without dominating.

Grapes are picked at the beginning of the tropical phase of ripening, as they pass through the citrus stage to develop peachy/ melon characters. Once crushed, the must is not given any skin contact, to avoid any broader flavours. Only the clean juices, free of solids are vinified, to achieve maximum freshness on the initial palate. A cold slow fermentation is inoculated, French barrels at a medium toast level are selected to avoid the vanillin of American oak. French oak is subtle as it infuses the wine with nutty, cashew flavours. A careful handling and selection of fruit, a long and cool temperature controlled vinification and early bottling capture all the expressions of vital Goulburn Valley Chardonnay.
Pale straw, green hues. Lifted lime and citrus with straw notes. Medium bodied, offering fresh flavours of gooseberries, showing plenty of melon, stoned fruit and lemon characters, well balanced with a long, crisp finish. Nutty French oak in the background adds interest and gently enriches the texture while soft acid fills out the picture.
