2013 Quarisa Wines Treasures Padthaway Chardonnay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

The Quarisa motto states, “Passion is everything,” and that does not just refer to the wine, it’s a reference to life, family, friendships - all the things that bring joy and laughter. John Quarisa’s Treasures' labels take inspiration from his children but he considers his wines to be his babies too. Sourced from Padthaway, an area in South Australia known for its distinct, cool climate character, this Chardonnay is elegance personified. Slow roast a chicken or a good cut of pork to benefit from a palate of tropical and citrus fruits with a creamy and persistent finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: Light yellow with hint of green colour

Bouquet: Cool climate style showing some melon, peach fruit flavours with some citrus balanced with some fine grain French oak

Palate: Full-bodied and rich yet with an elegant palate with varietal Chardonnay characteristics, a complex creamy texture and a long crisp finish

Serving suggestion: This wine is a great match with grilled fish or chicken

Peak drinking: This wine has the flavour, structure and balance to be enjoyed now or offers added satisfaction from further cellaring

Alc/vol: 13.5%

Nectarine and hints of toast on the palate; good weight and texture on the finish made for early consumption.
