Clarence Hill Chardonnay
Colour: Bright straw green with light honey tint.
Nose: Zesty & youthful with white peach, melon, nectarine and spices with an element of citrus flowers.
Palate: Low oak usage highlights pristine white peach with crisp citric acidity with length and richness. Whilst young, this wine is expected to fill out and develop some nutty nuance.
Potential: Drink now but some bottle maturation will allow the development of nuts and brioche.
Colour: Medium straw with a slight green hues
Nose: White peach, lemon curd with a waxy macadamia nut note. Light buttery complexity and some funky aromatics from the winemaking techniques. Should develop a flinty note with cellaring.
Palate: Clean, crisp acid with stone fruit and lemon zest/pith/curd. Some light phenolic lift from the oak adds interest and appeal. Needs a little time to meld together.
Potential: Drink now but short term cellaring (to 5 years) will add further complexity and varietal definition.
