Witchmount Estate Olivia's Paddock Chardonnay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Witchmount step it up a notch with this Olivia's Paddock chardonnay. Ripe stone fruits and crushed, toasted biscuits rise from the glass, whilst the palate is rich, peachy and a little bit spicy, with crisp acidity and a touch of toasty oak on the finish. It's decent value, very glugable, and would match well with a nice chicken pasta dish.

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: Pale straw.

Nose: Complex aromas of peach and lime derived from the vat. as well as barrel fermentation and yeast derived characters.

Palate: Rich and full bodied with creamy mid palate and long finish.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Bright mid-gold; a ripe nectarine and spice bouquet, showing mealy complexity; the palate is soft and generous, with stone fruit and tangy acidity in balance.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Greater depth of colour and more complexity to the Lowen Park, thanks to barrel ferment and lees contact, although fruit is still the cornerstone of the wine

Quite cool chardonnay fruit on the bouquet, with more savoury nutty characters dominating the long finish.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Complex, with nicely controlled barrel ferment inputs on grapefruit and melon; good length and intensity.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; complex but subtle barrel-fermentation characters are seamlessly folded into the fruit of the bouquet; the light to medium-bodied palate allows that gentle nectarine, melon and fig fruit free play.
