2016 Miles From Nowhere Chardonnay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Would you like to be miles from nowhere drinking a quality Chardonnay? That’s what the makers of this wine had in mind when they crafted the best quality Margaret River fruit and made this thoroughly modern rendition of Australia’s favourite white. This is ideal drinking for when roast chicken is on the menu. It shows all the charm of the region with nectarine and peach underpinned by nicely weighted vanillin oak. The mouthfeel is creamy and long and delivers good intensity as well as clean natural acids.

Winemaker's Notes

Fruit was harvested in the cool of early morning. Individual batches were pressed lightly to void extracting any harsh phenolics. Following settling, a portion of the juice was racked to French oak for fermentation. Yeast strains isolated from Burgundy and Portugal were used to enhance fruit aromas, wine structure, mouth feel and complexity. Post fermentation the wine received regular stirring or battonage to produce a wine that is creamy and viscous in texture. Various wine batches were blended in tank and given a light fining prior to bottling.
