2016 Terroir Chardonnay American Oak
A classic Chardonnay that has not yet reached its peak. Purchase and try now then put away until late 2019 when the aromas and flavours will really shine.
The vibrant acidity balances very well with its aromas and flavours of orange blossom, orange peel, green apple, vanilla, cloves, spice, caramel, and butterscotch producing a flavourful finish on the palate.
Commended 2018 Decanter World Wine Awards
Produced from fruit harvested October 12, 2016 at 24 Bx from the Strewn Home Farm vineyard. Following pressing, the juice was racked to 100% American oak barrels for fermentation and subsequent maturation with occasional battonage over 10 months. Following blending the wine was sterile filtered before bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
The earthy note is a great complement to dishes with cooked mushrooms such as Grilled Portobello Risotto, Baked Snapper with a Mushroom Duxelle or Wild Mushroom Crepes
