Fox Creek Chardonnay

Current vintage


A complex wine that has aromas of lime and stone fruits with melon citrus flavours on the palate. The flavours are fresh and mouth filling. The wine is made more complex by a portion being stirred on lees and barrel fermented.


Pale gold.


White peach, nectarine, rockmelon and cumquat, combined with fresh yeast characters and subtle biscuity oak to create a rich complex bouquet.


A rich fruity palate shows golden peach, pineapple and apricot flavours. The subtle and integrated oak frame supports the creamy and yeasty midpalate, with the crisp lemon zest acid completing a rich, full bodied wine that combines power and balance.


The Chardonnay vineyard was harvested in mid February after a warm post verasion ripening period. A portion of the juice (approximately 30%) was fermented in one to 4 year old French oak barrels. Approximately 25% of this blend was fermented in new oak as a wild yeast fermentation that also went through partial MLF to achieve greater complexity. The barrel fermented portion was matured in oak on yeast lees for 10 months to create a rich creamy palate. The remainder of the blend was fermented in stainless steel tanks at moderate temperatures to retain maximum fruit character.

Ageing potential

The Chardonnay is wonderful on release and we would expect the wine to be at its very best from early 2015 to 2020.
