2017 Broadvale Block 5 Chardonnay
Lifted aromas of fresh citrus fruits and white flowers with hints of honeydew melon and lemon meringue.
The vibrant and concentrated palate displays a core of sweet lemon and grapefruit, with some nuances of green melon and spice. A tightly structured wine with excellent texture and savoury oak derived notes, underpinned by a crisp natural acidity.
Intense seafood such as crayfish and salmon. Great with cheese too!
Cellar PotentialUp to 10 yearsWinemaking NotesThe cool 2017 vintage has produced a classic expression of this wine, displaying the concentrated citrus fruit flavours for which the Gingin 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. The sensitive crafting of the wine utilising French oak barriques has produced a Chardonnay with great flavour concentration and texture, which is rich, complex and perfectly balanced.
