Cracka Review

The Redbank wines have been going from strength to strength lately, and this bonny, lighter style of chardonnay would be just the thing for some gnocchi or a chicken caesar salad. It comes across as an unoaked wine, and shows lots of delicate citrus, white stone fruits and dairy smells on the nose. The palate is fresh, vibrant and a little bit creamy, with lemony flavours cutting through leading to a bright, cleansing finish. It's made to drink in the short-term, so chill a bottle down and hook in!

Winemaker's Notes

Pale gold with green-gold tints. The 2015 Redbank Long Paddock Chardonnay displays fresh aromas of lemon and lime zest, with white nougat and underlying hints of fresh peach. The palate shows generous flavours of green tropical fruits and lime curd with a creamy texture, which is balanced by a refreshing citrus acidity on the finish. Ready to drink on release and for up to two years.

Enjoy served with lemongrass and lime glazed salmon fillet with a side of Asian greens.

Alc/vol: 12.0%

Glowing green-yellow; a generously flavoured wine with very good bottle-developed complexity to its ripe stone fruit and grapefruit flavours. More or less ready now.

This is a label of the Hill Smith family group and is sourced from the King Valley. It is clean, focused and attractive drinking, with ripe, sweet fruit and a nicely balanced finish.

The long paddock was the strip along side roads and highways where stockmen used to spell their cattle when food was sparse. Why the makers of this wine think that winemakers do the same thing—the back label says they do—is beyond me. Whatever. This is a lovely lighter style of chardonnay with a creamy texture and good underlying acidity. Leaner and more herbaceous than many, it will appeal to jaded sauv blanc drinkers.

A budget-priced white from the King Valley that has ripe melon flavours and lively cleansing acidity.
