About The Wine
We you guys asked for it in our social media poll and we got it in!
Look at this very new age Purple “white” chardonnay! The colour comes from the infusion of Butterfly Pea Flower which has its origins in Asia and was introduced into Australia and used to revegetate coal mines in Australia. The flower is known to have medicinal properties and is used in traditional medicine for anti-depressant and anti-stress. The wine is 100% Estate Grown Chardonnay from Collie in Western Australia and has beautiful up-front flavours of peach and a creamy complexity supported by French oak. It also has beautiful mouth texture. A very pleasant white or should we say purple wine.
Comments from Wine Buyer Steve:
Well, this was weird sample to look at when it arrived as a sample however, I was pleasantly surprised by with wine itself. It is 100% Chardonnay infused with Butterfly Pea Flowers which gives it a fantastic Lavender colour. The Chardonnay is well rounded with good mouth texture and peach flavours. An easy drinking wine and is sure to be a hit at parties. Great Value at $14.00 per bottle.
My Score 90/100 WACC Silver Medal.
About the Producer:
The producer of this New Age Western Australian Classic “Purple” White 2019 is from a small family operation located in the Geographe wine region of Western Australia. The winery is a total family affair with two generations involved in the operation of the vineyard, winery, and cellar door. All the fruit used in production is 100$% Estate grown, and they have won many accolades.
The Geographe Wine region enjoys a classic climate of warm sunny days and cool, crisp evenings due to its close proximity to the Indian Ocean. The Mediterranean climate together with the gravelly loam soils and altitude from the Darling Ranges, provide a cool ripening season producing fruit of excellent quality.
