Another stunning chardonnay from Saracen Estates!!
Mid straw in colour, our 2017 chardonnay has strong nectarine, ripe lime and grapefruit flavours through the mouth. The palate is moderately rich but nice balancing acidity too. The oak is well integrated with light toast creaminess. The finish is long, rich, flinty and firm with a sizzle of ripe limes in the aftertaste.
On the nose, honeysuckle, poached pears, custard apple, pannacotta and pastry notes.
This chardonnay has spent 9 months in french oak; 45% in brand new Marsannay Le Bois Du Roy barrels.
This wine has great potential to age well. Serve only slightly chilled, it is an ideal accompaniment to a crispy skinned north west Barramundi dish.
