2021 Small Batch Organic Chardonnay
One of the Chapel Hill Team's favourites. Won the 'Best White Wine' Trophy at the McLaren Vale Wine Show.
Title: Halliday Wine Companion
Description: A thoroughly enjoyable warm-climate white. Ripe, round, unctuous and slippery of texture, almost suggestive of something from the Rhone. Scents of glazed quince, marzipan and stone fruit allusions corralled by a gentle waft of impeccably managed phenolics and soft acidity. Mid-weighted of feel despite the lowish alcohol, with a palpable mellifluousness to it all, neither forced or stylistically nor tweaked technically. Intuitively handled sans winemaking chicanery. Very good drinking.
Award Date Description: November 2022
Rating: 90 / 100
A complex Chardonnay with an enticing nose of white peach, fresh fig, meyer lemon and a sprinkle of allspice. The fleshy palate has a delicious soft, creamy texture which will make you go back for more!
