CHRISMONT Chardonnay 2016

CHRISMONT Chardonnay 2016
New Vintage

The crisp acidity found in white wines from the King Valley is at the fore in this wine. Delightful aromas of peach, nectarine and melon follow suit, and familiar to the palate of all discerning Chardonnay drinkers. Gently pressed directly to new and old French oak barriques, the wine is then allowed to ferment naturally to enhance its fullness full palate.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
COLOUR: Lemon to light gold. AROMA: Generous fruit aromas of melon and orange zest join with flint and roasted cashew. PALATE: Flavours of stone fruit ahead of brioche and nuts with a silky texture and balanced acidity.
Winemaker Notes
“The fruit is harvested in early March when apple and melon flavours and moderate acidity is evident, usually with a potential alcohol of 12.5. The fruit then is directly pressed into new and older French oak hogsheads where it is allowed to naturally ferment. Half the barrels also undergo malolactic fermentation before being matured for 11 months with regular lees stirring. Blending and bottling takes place early in the New Year just before the next vintage is ready to be harvested.” Warren Proft, winemaker
Food Pairing Notes
Fresh shellfish or a lovely silky risotto with new season vegetables.
