Dalrymple Cave Block Chardonnay 2016
Stand in this small vineyard and stare into the face of Bass Strait and feel the maritime wind which helps the slow ripening of our premium grapes. Since 1987 the Dalrymple vineyard has crafted some of Australia's most distinctive cool-climate wines.
This 2016 Chardonnay has delicate white floral notes lifting out of the glass before the more noticeable aromas of ripe fresh cut nectarine combine with nougat, hazelnuts and mixed dried spices. Flavours of nectarine and citrus form the core of the fruit characters, with brioche and crushed nuts adding complexity and a sense of texture. The warmer vintage gives a more generous finish, but the hallmark fine acidity is still the driver through the palate, giving life and focus to the fruit flavours.
