A beautifully crafted wine with delicate aromas of citrus and melon fruits. A clean, fresh palate showing ripe melon, white peach and grapefruit flavours with a crisp, long finish.
This wine can be enjoyed now but with careful cellaring over the next 10-20 years you will be truly rewarded.
Established in 1979 by Geoff and Susan Bull, Freycinet was the first commercial winery on the East Coast of Tasmania. Today daughter Lindy and partner Claudio Radenti who both have extensive winemaking experience from their travels around the world carry on the tradition.
Produced from Freycinet’s original 1979 plantings, the 2021 vintage bought lower than average yields delivering fruit of superb concentration and balance resulting in some of the finest Chardonnay produced to date. Fermented and maturated in French oak barriques with regular lees stirring to enhance texture.
95+ Point Rated - Campbell Mattinson
"This wine is tightly crafted and combines purity, power and persistence. The delicate aroma features citrus and melon fruits with notes of hazelnut and spice. The palate is pristine, fresh and vibrant revealing ripe rockmelon, white peach, grapefruit and lime peel flavours strung together with shimmering acidity and spicy oak. A wonderful balance of luxurious texture and tension signal a long future ahead. A favourite match with Tasmanian crayfish, this wine is equally suited to roast chicken and pork."
93 Point Rated - Dave Brookes James Halliday Wine Companion
"East Coast Tasmanian chardonnay from 1979 plantings; matured in French oak barriques. Light straw with aromas of grapefruit, nectarine and peach with hints of lemon butter, vanillin oak, white flowers and stone. Mouth Filling with some nice concentration on the palate, tight acidity bringing all into line and a finish flush with stone and citrus fruits, spice and clotted cream."
93 Point Rated - Tyson Stelzer Wine Business Monthly Magazine
"A Stunning Chardonnay of character and tension. Impeccably tended fruit in the fabled Freycinet amphitheatre on Tasmania's East Coast is expressed in beautiful ripeness of stone fruits, even hints of tropicals, with a wonderful line of focused Tasmanian acidity. Kudos to Claudio Radenti."
91 Point Rated - Huon Hooke The Real Review
"Medium yellow colour with a malty, honey, caramel, apricot bouquet, the palate full and rounded, ample and generous, but just lacking a little refinement and poise. A trace of brown apple. A gutsy and slightly grippy old-school chardonnay which will have its fans."
