2014 ‘XYZ’ Chardonnay

2014-XYZ-Chardonnay-FSWine Notes

Region: Hunter Valley

Alcohol: 13.5%

Background: The XYZ brand wines constitute modern styles of Chardonnay and Shiraz. New Generation wines from the Hunter Valley.

Fruit source: Fruit for this wine is from an old-vine vineyard in Pokolbin and a mature Chardonnay vineyard at Broke

Fermentation: The fruit was whole bunch pressed and then barrel fermented with no malolactic fermentation allowed.

Maturation: 100% French oak ranging from one year-old to three years-old for a period of six months.

Winemaker’s comments: 2014 was a great problem free vintage in the Hunter Valley for all grape varieties. Chardonnay ripened early with harvesting taking place in mid February

Tasting notes: White Peach and Nectarine stone-fruit aromas fill the nose. The same characters flow on to the flavoursome palate which also has hints of spicy French oak. A nice line of acid holds the fruit and oak together to show impeccable balance

Cellaring estimate: Short—medium term.

Suggested food match:Fuller flavoured seafood, chicken and pasta cuisine.
