2016 Oxford Landing Estates Chardonnay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Fun and uncomplicated is the theme with this chardy from Oxford Landing. It’s a peachy little number that has the mearest kiss of toasty oak on the nose, whilst the palate has flavours of peaches and cream all wrapped up in friendly lemony acidity, and a smooth, crisp finish. Excellent value, and an ideal fish burger wine.

Winemaker's Notes

Pale straw green in colour. Aromas of fresh cut peach flesh with accents of wild honey and hints of lemon myrtle. These are supported by fig and cinnamon spice complexities from wild fermentation. Layers of flavour build across the medium bodied palate, and reflect not only the fruit but the use of wild fermentation and ageing on yeast lees. On the palate the slightest hint of oak comes through as a hint of cinnamon and spice, highlighting the complexity derived from barrel matured reserve wine. Balanced acidity gives the wine thrust through to the refreshing finish.

Deliciously accompanies gnocchi with sautéed broad beans, feta, lemon and sage.

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
