Chardonnay - Bay of Fires 2016/17 Chardonnay
Winery : Bay of Fires
Fine fruit from the state's top vineyard sites, in this vintage Coal V, East Coast and Derwent Valley.
A pristine but textured chardonnay to drink now or age. Exceptional fruit intensity with peach and grapefruit. Minerally acidity and creamy toast characters carry through on the palate. There's plenty of texture but the wine ultimately finishes crisply. Wild ferment. Alcohol is a modest (for Chardonnay) 13.5%. Winemaker is Penny Jones.
