Miles from Nowhere Best Blocks Chardonnay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

If you were stuck miles from nowhere, then this rich, buttery style of chardy would certainly ease the pain. Stone fruits, citrus, nuttiness and dairy aromas leap out of the glass, whilst the palate is more medium-bodied, plush and creamy-textured, with a bright line of cleansing acidity and a kick of nutty oak in the tail. Great with pork gyozas.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Light straw.

Nose: A rich and inviting nose of peach and nectarine aromas, with cinnamon and nutmeg spice.

Palate: Butterscotch and ripe stone fruit flavours, with a rich and luscious creamy mouth feel. A complex wine with a spicy oak finish.

Food: Creamy thyme and pepper chicken breasts with green beans.

Cellaring: Drink now or cellar for up to 5 years.

Expert Reviews

Ray Jordan (2011 Vintage) says
Fragrant aromas of stone fruit and citrus with a touch of grapefruit. The palate is controlled and precise with a fine fruit character, The acid sustains a long finish which has good flavour intensity right through the profile. A lighter style but still with good flavour.

The ripe nectarine and stone fruit characters on the nose are liberally sprinkled with spices. There's a hint of butterscotch richness in there. The palate is well structured with good fruit intensity. Has a spicy oak influence that complements the rich fruit flavours. A wine best in the shorter term but will evolve nicely.

Still pale in colour; a skilfully made Chardonnay combining focused elegance and harmonious fruit/oak balance and integration, melon and white peach fruit teamed with creamy, nutty oak.

A lighter bodied fruit driven style fo chardonnay with lots of appeal. Mix of cereal and subtle stone fruit with some neat vanilla pod and lightly roasted cashew. Easy current drinking of r for the near term.
