100% Chardonnay. Brilliant pale straw colour with greenish tinged edges and a watery hue. Pronounced white peach and nectarine aromatics morph into a complex amalgam of roasted cashew, nougat, a whiff of crème brulee, ginger and gun flint notes. Refined with a sleek feel across the palate, mouthfilling flavours of white peach, nectarine and dried honey meld with subtle notions of cashew, crème brulee and spicy nougat. Understated in its power and possessing a creamy texture it finishes deliciously fresh and very long. The fruit for the Dalrymple Chardonnay from Tasmania was hand-picked and after fermentation was matured in French oak barrels sourced from six different cooperages. Barrel rolling was employed to ensure light lees contact for texture while malolactic fermentation naturally adjusted acidity for balance and structure. ABV 13%
