Onannon Chardonnay, Mornington Peninsula
This product is currently sold out.
Richly flavoured yet fresh and minerally Australian Chardonnay.
From 19 year old vines on a single vineyard in Tuerong, this is the third year Onannon have worked with Bill Williams and the team at Tambo Estate. Bill painstakingly sorted the fruit which was placed straight into a cool room as it was being picked and trucked back in the cool of the night to be processed straight away. The grapes were crushed and a little amount of whole bunches were thrown into the press, the juice settled overnight and then racked it to barrel. We played around with different levels of solids. A Combination of yeasts were used to help build some complexity. No MLF. 20% new French Oak. 10 months in the barrel.
Notes of nectarine, citrus, fennel, jasmine and almond nougat with a feathering of spice and burnt matches. Medium bodied with flavours of lime juice and white peach, the sweet nutty complexity adds to the flavour and texture. There's a delicious limey acidity and a long tight finish with cedar and zest in the aftertaste. Magic.
Try this with lemon roast chicken, baked Lemon Sole or shellfish.
