Swan Valley Back Vintage Chardonnay 2016

About the Wine:
This awesome oaked Western Australian Back Vintage Chardonnay 2016 was barrel fermented and then spent 12 months in new French oak barrels. The wine displays rich fruit flavours of melon, peach and green citrus notes combined with integrated oak creaminess on the palate. 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 barrel fermented 2016 Chardonnay. The winery put this Chardy into brand new French oak barrels for 12 months. The oak integration is amazing 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. It has developed into a very creamy golden yellow oaked Chardonnay. This is exceptional value at $14.00 per bottle as the winery sells it under brand at $38.00 per bottle.
My score 93/100 – WACC Gold Medal
About The Producer:
The producer of this wine is a small family operation with very little retail presence. The family has recently SHIFTED from wine making to truffle growing in the Manjimup area. 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.
