Tasting Notes

2x 101 Margaret River Chardonnay 2017

Pale green with very attractive lifted cashew fruit that follows through to the palate. Fine and weighted with abundant varietal Chardonnay and a touch of oak.


2x The Wine Eden Valley Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Medium straw with green edges. The nose opens with peaches, grape fruit and tropical hints with a touch of creamy oak adding to the complexity. Stone fruits are quite obvious initially then the wine unravels to show watermelon, citrus and minerals notes followed with creamy oak characters.


1x Bitch Chardonnay 2016

Pale straw in colour with a bright edge. Lifted aromas of citrus and peach with deep notes of guava. Bright and vibrant, with layers of richness and fruit. Ripe peach and plush citrus fruits are balanced with hints of vanillin oak.


2x Limb Vineyards Reserve Barossa Valley Chardonnay 2017

Pale straw colour with a green tint. An inviting and creamy aroma with fresh peach, grapefruit and melon combining with a touch of oak to add to the complexity. This wine illustrates exactly how I have been handcrafting premium wine for my entire life, in the vineyard. The terror and microclimate of specific blocks produce something different each year. This year I selected the fruit due to the tropical fruits that flow onto the palate morphing into peach and melon flavours in the mouth. Hints of nutty and creamy barrel ferment characters add to the picture and the finish is long, fruity and zesty, balanced with some minerality and great acidity.


1x Normans Retro Series Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2016

Pale yellow in colour. Subtle notes of lemon curd complement delicate aromatics of grapefruit and nectarine. A fresh and elegant wine with pure fruit flavours of nectarine enhanced by crisp citrus acidity and a long, dry finish.


2x The Colonial Estate Exodus Barossa Valley Chardonnay 2018

Bright green with pale straw edge. Wonderful purity is obvious initially on the nose with fruit driven aromas of melon, peach and a slight hint of nut. Lovely citrus flavours with an array of fruits including, peach, nectarine and melon developing into a secondary layer of flavours of fig, lees and a touch of oak provide a creamy touch. Tight and focused on the finish with great depth of flavour and a lovely touch of natural fruit acidity.


2x The Kiss Mt Lofty Ranges Chardonnay 2017

The Kiss Chardonnay comes from two select vineyards within the higher areas on the Mount Lofty Ranges. We want the fruit flavours to shine through so the wine is not oak dominated, rather fruit first with some oak flavours. Nectarine, peach and blood orange fruit flavours backed up with some subtle almond, oatmeal and hazelnut derived from the 3 months in French oak barriques.  A minerality is evident throughout the palate whilst still maintaining an opulent creaminess from the lees stirring.  The mid palate generosity is pulled into line with a fresh lime acid finish.

Technical

101 Margaret River Chardonnay 2017

The fruit for this wine was sourced from the Calneggia Family Vineyards Estate Vineyard in the northern part of the Margaret River wine region. Harvested in early morning, crushed grapes were juice-extracted to a bright condition and fermented in stainless steel. Cold fermentation and storage.


The Wine Eden Valley Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

The fruit was sourced from a single vineyard from one of the regions most sought after and renowned growers. The fruit was picked during late February and crushed then part of the blend under went fermentation in oak whilst the balance under went malolactic fermentation to further add depth then the wine was aged for 3 months in second and third use oak. The wine was bottled and aged to allow the wine to settle prior to its release. Only 350 dozen produced.


Bitch Chardonnay 2016

Harvested at the cool of night from a single vineyard in the Riverland region of South Australia. Crushed and chilled, the fruit is allowed skin contact in press for 3 to 4 hours for maximum flavour extraction. Cool fermentation in stainless steel tank to dryness; 6 weeks on light lees with regular stirring several times a week with a small amount of oak contact; cold settled and racked to bottling.


Limb Vineyards Reserve Barossa Valley Chardonnay 2017

Crushed immediately after picking with minimal skin contact of 1 - 3 hours in the press. The majority of the blend is cold fermented in stainless steel for 8-10 days at 12-15C, with selected yeast and some lees maturation. A small parcel of the wine, approximately 25%, is aged in 1 year old French oak to soften the palate and malolactic fermentation induced to add further complexity to the style.


Normans Retro Series Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2016

Select parcels of fruit were sourced from the iconic cool climate region of the Adelaide Hills for this limited edition wine. The fruit was hand picked during the cool early hours of the morning. The fruit was then rapidly transported to the winery and immediately crushed, chilled and pressed. It is then allowed to settle before being racked off of juice lees, warmed and inoculated with selected dried wine yeasts. Fermentation occurred in stainless steel tanks of various sizes at 12-18 degrees. A small proportion of the wine (5%) is fermented in oak barrels to add a touch of complexity and texture to the wine. The finished parcels are carefully assessed, with only the finest chosen for the final blend prior to bottling.


The Colonial Estate Exodus Barossa Valley Chardonnay 2018

The 2018 vintage Chardonnay has come up extremely well and perhaps this vintage will go down as one of the Barossa’s finest. Grapes were harvested in individual batches to select only the finest quality fruit and minimize losses due to the small tonnes grown. The picking occurred in early March from a single vineyard located in the Barossa. The wine was crushed and fermented with 20% of the blend receiving oak fermentation with frequent lees stirring. The two parcels were blended together and bottled to retain fruit driven flavours.


The Kiss Mt Lofty Ranges Chardonnay 2017

La Bise is French for the kiss. We search the Mount Lofty Range vineyards for quality fruit to produce the wines that are “true” to that vineyard and express the flavours of the grapes. We often find vineyards in need of love and attention and by rejuvenating these vineyards we give them “the kiss of life”.

The wines are about fruit and vineyard expression. We aim for for mouthfeel and drinkability without high alcohol. We pick early in the vineyard to give wines that are lower in alcohol by nature as we believe this gives better drinkability and longevity.
