2017 Southside Chardonnay
Lively white stone fruit balanced with refreshing grapefruit and citrus zest. The subtle French oak adds a creamy texture to the lingering finish
92/100 Ray Jordan, The West Australian
"A riper, nutty style of chardonnay from this challenging vintage. Has lots of nectarine and stone fruit with a splash of cutting lemon. Bottled without filtration and shows excellent complexity with a generous palate profile"
This chardonnay is sourced from fruit grown on the estate vineyard in Wilyabrup. It offers a contrast to the Lenton Brae Wilyabrup Chardonnay, in being more accessible. Total ‘wild’ primary fermentation has added aromatic complexity and texture to the mouthfeel of the wine; barrel fermentation complements the flavour intensity and length. The wine was naturally settled and bottled without prior filtration. While still ‘fine’ and supported by ‘bright’ acidity it is approachable now and it will drink well in the short to medium term. Fermentation: New and aged French Oak
