2016 Eloquesta Chardonnay
This is a single vineyard 2016 Chardonnay from the bottom of a hillside in Mudgee that is well drained and sun-exposed. The chardonnay was fermented on skins for a 5 to 7 days then gently pressed off to finish fermentation in tank and barrel – new and old French and Hungarian oak hogsheads.
The wine displays very subtle notes of white blossom, vanilla, sandalwood spice, marshmallow, white plum, cream bun, pear drop and earl grey while being firm and citrus-like in acid on the palate. It’s a fantastic subtle chardonnay that allows food to express itself wonderfully.
