Chardonnay South Australia
Designed to be early drinking and refreshing, in a clean unwooded styling, Red Label defines the consistency of quality for which Wolf Blass is renowned. Crisp and refreshing with the tantalizing melon, stonefruit and mango flavours of fine Chardonnay, the absence of any oak allows the unadulterated varietal characters to shine through, fresh and lively with good weight of fruit and excellent length of palate.
Careful canopy management, including light summer pruning, means the grapes are evenly exposed to sunlight, the absence of oak in the finished wine allows the carefully preserved flavours of the fruit to shine through. The fruity flavours are balanced by the clean acidity and good length of the wine. The grapes are night harvested to preserve fresh fruit flavours and natural acid levels. Grapes are pressed and cold settled before being racked off lees into temperature controlled fermenters. A chilled vinification is then initiated with select yeasts. Upon completion, Red Label is treated to an early bottling for the preservation of youthful flavours in the finished wine.
Light straw with pale green hues. Tropical summer fruit aromas of mango, melon and peach drift up to the nose. A lively varietal palate, offering great length of clean, ripe and flavoursome fruit flavours.
