2016 Patina Chardonnay

RRP: $35.00

MEMBER: $26.25

Tasting Note

Toasty notes accented by enticing hints of peach, melon and honey are complemented by the complex, nutty oak and lees maturation aromas.

Winemaker’s Notes:
Orange consistently produces world class chardonnay; the Orange terroir seems to draw out the best of the variety. It is a very versatile variety that expresses beautifully as a lightly wooded style or as a barrel fermented and lees aged wine which shows rich flavours and velvety mouth feel.

Reviews & Awards:

91 Points “… There is some intensity here and it could come good with another year in bottle – although it is already more than three years old.” Huon Hooke, Jun 2019

Description

Colour: Pale straw.

Aroma:  Toasty notes accented by enticing hints of peach, melon and honey are complemented by the complex, nutty oak and lees maturation aromas.

Palate:  Delightful ripe fruit up front mix easily with the creamy lees and nuttiness derived from the oak. This is a very enticing wine.

Winemaking:  This wine was fermented and aged on lees for 12 months in oak barrels.

Cellaring:  It is drinking well now and I expect it become rounder and very scrumptious as it ages up to and possibly beyond 2027.
