Fresh, crisp and ready to drink, the 2013 Blue Pyrenees Chardonnay is a lightly-oaked style showing peach, nectarine and bakery yeast flavours with a mineral-like finish.

Eyes

Straw with bright green hues.

Nose

Nectarines, toasty French oak and barrel ferment yeast complexity dominate the aromas.

Mouth

Peach like fruit and bakery yeast flavours feature strongly on the palate, neatly interwoven with the less obvious cedary French oak and the refreshing grapefruit/mineral finish extends the flavour length and makes a crisp dry style with lingering fruitiness.

Winemaking Notes

Chardonnay is generally recognised as the world’s greatest white variety, a versatile grape that produces fine wines in many different wine regions. The Blue Pyrenees Chardonnay 2012 has been created from 4 different outstanding Chardonnay fruit parcels selected from mature vineyard blocks. The 2012/2013 growing season had healthy winter rains, a mild spring and summer with intermittent rains, then a warm dry Autumn which produced healthy vine canopies, average crops, and plenty of flavour development. Harvesting at 12.5* Beaume sugar level helped produce moderate alcohol levels and the finer style Chardonnay that is now preferred by most in Australia. 50% per cent of this wine was matured for 9 months in a old French oak. Traditional and contemporary techniques were used to craft this elegant wine, notably natural fermentation, barrel fermentation and yeast lees stirring or battonage, which has added both complexity and richness to the vineyard derived fruit flavours. The result is a medium-bodied crisp dry white wine with the classic complex flavour profile sought in great Chardonnays.

Honeyed fruit, with savoury elements on both the nose and the flavoursome palate.
