About The Wine

 

This awesome Blackwood Valley Back Vintage Chardonnay 2017 is oozing beautiful peach, tropical melon and citrus characters combined with silky oak integration. The wine spent 12 months in new French oak barrels.  The wine is elegant and refined and will age spectacularly with increased intensity and oak flavours. This Chardonnay has great ageing potential.

 

 

Comments from Wine Buyer Steve:

 

This is a stunning 2017 Back Vintage Chardonnay. The winery put this Chardy into brand new French oak barrels for 12 months. The oak integration is subtle and not overpowering together with the fresh flavours of peach and melon and fine citrus flavours. This is a Chardonnay that is going to get better and better with age. This is exceptional value at $14.00 per bottle as the winery sells it under brand at $27.00 per bottle.

 

My Score 94/100 WACC Gold Medal.

 

 

About The Producer

 

The producer of this wine is a very small family operation in the heart of the Blackwood Valley in WA. with very little retail presence other than in restaurants and via cellar door. They have never gone down the road of wine shows or rating by James Halliday preferring to keep it local and produce wines of exceptional quality. All wines produced are in small batches with love, care and respect for the grape.

The climate is characterised by moderate temperatures, with rainfall predominant in the winter months and dry and warm summer days. Fruit intensity is highlighted by cool nights, and coupled with the elevation of the region giving Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon cool climate characters which is a growing strength in Australian wine styles.

The region varies in elevation, from 100 metres in the west to 340 metres in the east.

The deep gravel soils found on sites provides fruit intensity and flavour and is ideally suitable for vineyards.
