2012 Zdar Chardonnay

2012 Zdar Chardonnay

Colour

Pale golden yellow.

Aroma

Ripe honeydew and hints of lemon barley combined with subtle toast and creamy vanilla from barrel stirring.

Palate

A richly textured wine with flavours of ripe white peach, vanilla and toasted chestnut with seamlessly integrated French oak. A creamy, rounded palate with depth and complexity balanced with fresh crisp natural acid and a lingering finish​.

This Chardonnay is ready to enjoy now but the structure and natural cool climate acidity should enable confident cellaring until at least 2022.

Wine Profile
Production Notes
Hand picked Chardonnay is pressed and the juice is then placed directly into barrels with no settling or fining. The oak is all French barriques and approximately one third are new with the remainder 1 and 2 years old. Fermentation is carried out in the barrels which are stirred weekly to give texture, palate weight and complexity. The wine spends 12 months in oak and is aged at least 12 months in bottle and 2 years before release. We choose screw cap closure to ensure the wine will be enjoyed at its optimum.
Food Pairing Notes
Full flavoured seafood and rich poultry dishes.
Other Notes
Good winter and spring rainfall allowed the vines an early and strong bud-burst when the season began. Warm (for Tasmania) mild conditions produced moderate crops that ripened early and displayed richness and intensity of flavour with beautifully balanced power and natural acidity for age-ability and length. Undoubtedly one of the finest vintages of recent years.
