Chardonnay Barossa Eden South Australia
The history of the Burge family and their long association with winemaking in Barossa Valley can be traced back to March 1855, when bespoke tailor John Burge immigrated with his wife and two sons. A fifth generation of the Burge dynasty now brings together the exquisite elegance of Eden Valley with the soft velvetine textures of Barossa, into a remarkable Chardonnay wine. Fashioned to be enjoyed youthful and vibrant alongside seared tuna, salade nicoise or your favourite chicken recipe.
Grapes are crushed, chilled and pressed, juices are settled for two days before inoculation through the action of eight choice strains of yeast, the majority of components are treated to three weeks of cooler temperatures vinification in controlled fermenters, a third of the wine is sent to seasoned French oak for a course of rich barrel ferments, malolactic and maturation. Upon completion, batches are held for a few months on yeast lees to build texture and infuse richness, followed by a gentle racking and the final assemblage, aimed at retaining maximum flavour, preserving freshness and highlighting the richness of sur lie.
Lemon green hue. An elegant nose dominated by white peach, apricot and hints of honeydew melon. The palate is packed with citrus fruit character, nectarines and cream are balanced by a crisp, lemon rind acidity. A rich and complex contemporary style of Chardonnay that's bound to please. Perfect alongside chicken tikka masala or a sage and pinenut gnocchi.
