2014 Broadvale Block 5 Chardonnay
Lifted citrus notes with hints of savoury oak.
Citrus blossom aromas are underpinned by a core of grapefruit on the palate. A tightly structured wine with savoury oak-derived notes, held together with a line of acidity through the finish.
Intense seafood such as crayfish and salmon. Great with cheese too!
Cellar PotentialUp to 10 yearsWinemaking NotesA perfect ripening period for Chardonnay has produced a great expression of this wine, displaying the hallmark concentrated citrus fruit flavours for which the Gin Gin clone is renowned. Early hand-harvesting, use of wild yeast fermentation and grape solids, combined with regular batonnage, have all contributed texture, complexity and balance to the wine. Sensitive winemaking techniques and the use of French oak, produced a wine with great flavour concentration and texture, which is rich yet complex and elegant.
