Pale lemon in colour, this approach-able young wine has hints of citrus, nashi pear and apple, which flow seamlessly into lovely cashews and steel-cut oats on the back palate. The finish is clean, crisp and perfectly balanced with a backbone of lively acidity. A fruit-driven wine, with subdued oak giving this wine a modern style, great texture and approachability. Designed for early drinking but with careful cellaring, it will reward for up to 5 years.
The Winmark 2021 Winmark Chardonnay was harvested in the cool night air and respected this superb fruit throughout fermentation and maturation with protective and gentle handling. The resultant wine charms with a striking pale lemon hue, bursting with elderflower and white peach aromas. The palate is juicy and intriguing, with stone fruits and ripe Meyer lemon notes supported with elegant spices. Enjoy now or cellar with confidence for up to 5 years.
Pale gold in colour. Initially, brioche and toasty oak are evident, with an alluring aroma of grilled stone fruit, melon fig and barbecued citrus. The tight, savoury texture on the palate will lengthen with careful ageing if you can wait. This wine is sumptuous in flavour, warm and toasty, with excellent structure and a fine acid backbone, finishing strongly with persistent hints of cashew and toast. Will cellar superbly for 8-10 years.
The fruit was hand-harvested and gently whole bunch pressed to maintain freshness. The cool juice was then fermented with indigenous yeast and matured in Marcel Cadet French oak barrels for eleven months.
This wine needs no introduction as she is the epitome of the site. Powerful yet precise with the depth and grace that only mature vines can deliver.
This Chardonnay will continue to develop beautifully in cellar for up to 10 years, or enjoy its youthful vibrancy now.
