Dalwhinnie Moonambel Chardonnay, Pyrenees
This product is currently sold out.
Exceptional, unique and compelling Chardonnay from the high Victorian Pyrenees.
Vinification remains virtually the same except the wine now sees less oak but still the best quality French oak. Winemaker’s comments: "Our 25th vintage of Dalwhinnie Chardonnay and still in top form. The Chardonnay has evolved over the years and the development of today’s style has seen a refining of viticulture techniques like using organic fertilizers and picking the grapes at optimum freshness, meaning picking very early".
Wonderful toasted hazelnut aromas with light vanilla pod and finely grained touch of oak on the nose. The palate is bold but incisive with really bright almost capsicum fruit. It stays bright with an affirmitive textural presence over tightly wound, again fine grained, oaky notes on the finish.
As a food wine, the clean stoney palate and texture would make it a great pairing with fine fresh water fish dishes.
