Jordan Chardonnay Auction Reserve 2008

Winemaking Notes Specially selected for the CWG Auction, this reserve Chardonnay is traditionally made using natural, wild yeast from the acclaimed Nine Yards Chardonnay vineyard. Intensely concentrated lemon-lime flavours and slow fermentation in 228 litre Burgundian oak barrels for twelve months has resulted in a classic style with a new world twist. Quartzite veins running through the 600 million year old granite sub-strata provide the backbone for the minerally flavours. Regular barrel rolling accentuates the rich, leesy character in this elegantly expressive wine. Tasting Notes An iconic Chardonnay with intense, minerally, lemon-lime flavours and hints of butterscotch and vanilla. The full, rich mouthfeel and balanced oak integrates superbly with the tropical fruit finish.
