Shadow's run Unwooded Chardonnay

Current vintage

2011

A soft and rich wine with a full mouthfeel showing golden peach, ripe pear, honeydew melon and banana flavours all drawn together with a crisp zesty citrus finish.

Appearance

Pale gold.

Bouquet

A rich lifted array of lemongrass, lime juice, pineapple and nectarine aromas.

Palate

Peacherine, aprricot, pineapple and mango flavours complement the rich, generous midpalate, all drawing through to the balanced and soft finish that shows great texture and weight.

Winemaking

This was a cool growing season with ripening occurring in early March. The tropical and stone fruit flavours developed late in ripening and the cool nature of the season preserved the fresh acidity and structure of the wine. The fruit for this wine was selected in the vineyard for its flavour and suitability to the unwooded style. Fermentation for 2 weeks in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures maintained the purity of fruit and aromas in this wine.

Technical analysis

  • Alcohol 13.5%

Ageing potential

This wine is suited for early drinking and will retain fresh fruit characters for the next couple of years. This wine is made to be enjoyed whilst it is young.
