Chardonnay - Stargazer 2017 Chardonnay
Winery : Stargazer
Samantha Connew's excellent Chardonnay is from a single vineyard in the Coal Valley. The oak is superb, the fruit pristine but with body and intensity. Wild ferment. Keep for up to a decade and you will be rewarded. Sam Connew is ex Wirra Wirra and Tower Estate winemaker. Stargazer is her Tasmanian venture; the wines are made from carefully selected parcels of grower fruit.
Crafted from premium Coal Valley fruit, it's all white peach, nougat and a little heady gardenia. Brilliant use of first-class oak enhances the intense and pristine fruit. Great mouthfeel and finish. Lingering.
