Description

3 Gold Medals at 3 major shows, its true to Whitehaven's pedigree of over delivering on quality... this 2017 Chardonnay has been given the Rolls Royce of winemaking. Handpicked fruit whole bunch pressed then fermented in 100% French Oak, a judicious 22% new puncheons... the remainder seasoned. 100% Malolactic fermentation has softened the acidity and long with regular lees stirring and 11-months in barrel has fattened the texture adding a ying yang contrast to the deliciously long finish.

Smells

Flinty mineral notes subtly underpin complex hazelnut, orange blossom, butterscotch, toast and citrus zest.

Tastes

Generous, rich palate, with the extended barrel aging and 100% Malolactic Fermentation attributing to the butterscotch, biscuit, infusion within ripe stone-fruit and zesty citrus elegance on the finish. Enjoy now in its youth, or age over the next 5-7 years... it has great structure to ensure it handles rich, creamy dishes with ease.
