Southside Chardonnay

Southside Chardonnay

2021 Chardonnay

Margaret River, Western Australia

This Chardonnay will appeal to those seeking a fruit driven style with depth and length.

    Description

    Nose: Warm brioche, cashews, vanilla, spiced apple pie with cream and a hint of citrus zest.

    Palate: Soft and inviting with structural oak that allows the fruit to shine. Flavours of white nectarine, peach and yellow grapefruit sit in harmony with delicate spice, cashews, toasted brioche, and apple pie on the finish.

    Pairing: Crayfish, marron or other shellfish would be perfectly balanced by this wine. Or stick with the classics and pair with roast chicken and crispy potatoes.

    Winemaking: Total wild yeast fermentation has added aromatic complexity and texture to the mouthfeel of the wine; barrel fermentation complements the flavour intensity and length. We have used about 20% new oak to allow the fruit to shine. The wine was naturally settled and bottled without any fining.
