Chenin Blanc Western Australia
Moondah Brook is a contemporary range of varietal wines sourced from premium Western Australian vineyards. Patience and dedication, hard work and an ongoing commitment to sustainable viticulture, have all contributed to the development of the finest Chenin Blanc vineyards in the west. A splendid example of how Chenin Blanc has taken to the salubrious mesoclimes of West Australia, fashioned to the traditionally complex and dry, fruit filled, food friendly style.
Moondah Brook are one of Western Australia's elder winemaking estates, established 1968 at Gingin, just north of Perth. The site was chosen after a lengthy survey to determine a location most suitable to viticulture. Uniqu mesoclimes, sea breezes in the afternoon and gully winds of an evening assist with the reduction in temperatures at ripening, allowing the wines to capture and express great varietal character. The estate was later acquired by Houghton and continues to represent superior quality within an approchable range of wines. Choice parcels of Chenin Blanc are harvested throughout the cool of night at lower temperatures, vinified in controlled fermenters and bottled early to retain freshness.
Pale straw with soft golden hues. A rich array of fresh pineapple, citrus and passionfruit aromas, intense and vibrant bouquet. A medium bodied palate displays exquisite fruit intensity and freshness. Soft creamy textures are balanced by fine lemon acidity which carry the fruit. A match to Al fresco, Asian faire or gourmandise style of battered fish and chips.
