Chardonnay - Delamere 2021 Chardonnay
Winery : Delamere
Co-owners and winemakers Fran Austin (GT Wine Young Winemaker of the Year Vintage 2005) and Shane Holloway embarked on their Delamere Vineyard project in 2011, after purchasing it from Richie Richardson who had planted the first vines in 1982.
2021 was a great year in the Pipers River region of north east Tasmania.
Michele's notes: Flinty and crisp with a breezy waft of seashell but also redolent with melon and apricot. There’s a little ginger spice too, a vineyard terroir characteristic for chardonnay which also shows in the Delamere Blanc de Blanc Sparkling. In the mouth there is a silky flow of superb fruit, finishing with nougat. The acid is folded in beautifully.
