The latest Palliser Estate Chardonnay has body to burn and flavours that will appeal to die hard Chardonniastas on a mission to enjoy a big buttery number and those who like their Chardonnays crisp and fresh.
This wine was made from hand picked grapes, all estate grown by Palliser and a high proportion of them certified organic. The wild yeast ferment accentuates oatmeal and savoury notes, which support the fresh nectarine like fruit flavours in this wine.
The mouthfeel highlights barrel ferment characters of creaminess balanced by a line of ripe acidity. The wine flows with energy, concentration and a rounded core carrying to a long, creamy, nutty finish. This is an elegant and softly concentrated Chardonnay with harmonious layers of flavour.
