by Single Vineyard Sellers

$172.00 GST Included

AUSTRALIA WIDE SHIPPING INCLUDED

This Chardonnay has been made with only the “free run” juice – the first run, finest quality juice without the bitterness and phenolics associated with the grape skin. The juice was fermented in new and second use French oak 500 litre puncheons with some grape solids giving the wine a complex savoury note. It matured in oak for 9 months.

Colour is a bright clear steely white with youthful green hues. Nectarine and mandarin are complemented by a textured savoury mid palate with hints of melon and spicy vanillin oak leading to a long crisp grapefruit finish. A vibrant lifted nose of citrus and stone fruits with savoury cashew notes and hints of gunflint and toasty French oak. This wine will improve with up to 10 years careful cellaring.

Description

Apricus Hill, established in 1995, is the highest vineyard in Denmark, on Western Australia’s south coast. At 750 feet above sea level and with panoramic views of the southern ocean the vineyard experiences a true maritime effect with cooling ocean breezes make it a true “cool climate” vineyard.

James Halliday has rated our wines for the first time in his 2016 Wine Companion and we have begun with a five star rating, we start as we mean to go on.

Looking to the other direction gives spectacular views to the Porongurups across the vineyard. A truly stunning setting.

This is a small family vineyard, creating small volumes of wine.
