2016 Pirramimma White Label French Oak Chardonnay
- $320 per twelve pack - normally $360 ($26.67 each)
The complex nose displays nutty, smoky oak, melon, peach and citrus aromas, with a hint of apple. With the palate delivering peacharine, grapefruit, smoky almond, rock melon, tinges of mandarin and cashew. A multifaceted wine with fruit, oak and natural acidity in harmony, finishing with great length of flavour. Approachable now or will reward short term cellaring.
We selected fruit from our Homestead and Johnston Road blocks, plus four generation growers on McMurtrie Road and Badgers Road near Kuitpo in the Adelaide Hills. The cool climate Adelaide hills fruit complemented the richer McLaren Vale component. Each vineyard was picked at differing baume levels, to guarantee a spectrum of flavours.
A portion of each vineyard was barrel fermented in new Tonnellerie Quintessence French Oak, using eight different yeast strains, including Wild Yeast.
