Deviation Road Reserve Chardonnay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

We don’t need to tell you that Chardonnay is back in fashion in a big way but we gong to remind you anyway. Every producer worth their salt are making wines of interest and detail and Deviation Road is just another one that you should add to your wish list. Made with top-notch Adelaide Hills fruit, the nose delivers peach and melon with a hint of roasted nuts. Elegance is the key to this cool climate charmer; it’s creamy, intense with a finish of refreshing natural acids. It would work brilliantly with most chicken dishes.

Winemaker's Notes

Aromas of nectarine, melon and pear deliver on the palate with a hint of toasted nut, white peach, citrus and quince. Elegant but intense flavours fill the mouth with subtle creaminess concluding with a soft clean finish.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; a very well-balanced wine from go to whoa; balance between fruit and oak and balance between the citrus and stone fruit flavours gives the wine harmony, and underwrites its present length and future longevity.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Nectarine and peach fruit dominates the bouquet, with a hint of toasty oak to complement; the palate is generous and rich, and yeast shows a zesty quality on the finish, providing light and shade.

Nectarine and peach fruit dominates the bouquet, with a hint of toasty oak to complement; the palate is generous and rich, yet shows a zesty quality on the finish, providing light and shade.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Minimal bottle development 18 months from vintage; lively, bright and crisp aromas, then tangy, lively grapefruit and nectarine on a long palate; perfect oak.
