Crittenden Estate The Zumma Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
The bouquet offers savoury elements of smoky bacon, nectarine, solidsy complexity and spicy oak notes; the palate is electrifying with its intensity and linear acidity, providing a long, engaging, refreshing and expansive conclusion; simply a lovely wine in every respect.

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Made using very similar techniques to the standard wine, except the mlf is 30%. The far greater intensity and focus of this wine comes from the selection of the best portion of the home vineyard, now 24 years old; the wine flows through the mouth with controlled intensity, the flavours of nectarine and white peach joined by a hint of fig, and oak in the background.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Bright straw-green; this is obviously a fruit selection, fractionally fuller and rounder in the mouth, but using all the techniques employed with its sister wine; perhaps a little more mlf, and/or a higher percentage of new oak.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Plenty of effort can be seen in this wine, with toasty oak, ripe nectarine, citrus fruit and a touch of minerality all playing pivotal roles; the palate shows lemony acidity, drawing out the palate for a long and complex conclusion.
