Grand Barossa Eden Valley Chardonnay 2016
Tasting Notes

Aromas of citrus fruits, melon and white peach lead to bright tropical fruit flavours on the palate with a refreshing acidity. On the finish hints of vanilla and cashew nut are derived from partial new French oak barrel maturation. 

Grand Barossa Chardonnay displays all the delicacy, elegance and finesse that can be achieved from this noble variety. 

Winemaking

The grapes were picked early to retain freshness and acidity. A small portion of the Chardonnay was fermented in seasoned French oak so as not to overpower the fruit but add depth, complexity and structure to the wine finish.

Reviews
88 Points and Equal Top Australian Chardonnay
Review by: Wine Enthusiast
Perfumed notes of tropical fruit, lime and flowers burst from the glass. The palate...carries good weight and balancing acidity. Overall, this is an enjoyable...wine. 88 Points
