2016 Broadvale Block 5 Chardonnay
Complex aromas of sweet grapefruit with hints of guava and spice.
The rich and concentrated palate displays a core of sweet citrus fruits with some tropical nuances. 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. A great cheeseboard wine.
Cellar PotentialUp to 10 yearsWinemaking NotesThe 2016 vintage has produced a classic expression of this wine, displaying the hallmark 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 bâtonnage, 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.
