Palliser Estate - Pencarrow Chardonnay - 750ml
COLOUR Brilliant straw-gold with lemon flecks.
AROMA A balanced showcase of fruit, lees and oak interaction — almond meal and Anzac biscuit at first, followed by peach, nectarine and a whisper of flinty minerality to finish
AGEING POTENTIAL A perfect match for Mango Chicken Curry or crispy pork belly over the next 3 to 5 years.
PALATE Weighty and intense in the mouth, with a creamy, biscuity texture, a lively acid line drives a refined and complex finish. The stone fruits on the nose are joined by juicy tropical notes of fresh pineapple and mango, followed by lemon tart and vanilla.
WINEMAKING Vineyard and Winemaking Info: Fruit from our Om Santi and Clouston vineyards, 70% wild fermented in barrel with occasional lees stirring for added weight and texture. Matured in 20% new French oak barrels for 10 months.
