Description

Tony’s Premier Cru Chardonnay.... Skeetfield is handpicked Mendoza fruit off the dry-farmed (zero irrigation) old vine legendary vineyard of the same name, 100% barrel fermented in Taransaud French Oak barriques, 60% new. Tony is passionate about the vineyard terroir relating to his Chardonnay's... and equally passionate regarding the terroir of the Taransaud Oak (quality/ age/ tree selection/ harvesting of their oak), which plays a vital role in the precision, seamless harmony and seduction of Skeetfield. Indigenous and malo-lactic ferments have created impressive complexity and layers and ageing in barrel on lees yielded a superbly rich texture. The critics bestowing high 5-star ratings... and we are committed to our impressive FWD Co. 96/100! Cellar 10-15 years with ease in quality storage. If you open it soon then make sure you create a special dish... to appropriately capture and enjoy its magnificence.

Smells

Rich, seductive aromas of stone fruits, spices, roasted nuts and lemon meringue pie.

Tastes

Deliciously rich entry onto the palate where an abundance of stone fruit merge with spice, roasted nut and vanillin oak complexities. The creamy texture and additional richness from lees ageing build right through the subtly powerful and elegant finish that is deeply persistent. It demands and deserves a special food accompaniment and will drink through 2028-2032.
