Prom Road Chardonnay 2011

Prom Road Chardonnay 2011

The fruit from this wine comes from a lovely north-facing site over looking Westernport Bay. It was picked at relatively low sugar levels with excellent natural acidity and flavour. The wine was tank fermented and left on lees for 7 months to build complexity. It displays nectarine and grapefruit flavours and a beautiful line of citrus acid to finish.

The 2011 Prom Road Chardonnay recently received a brilliant review from Sydney wine writer Mike Bennie on the Winefront website: http://www.winefront.com.au
Mike wrote:

Bright, vital aromas that run somewhere between whiteorchard fruits and citrus with a hint of oatmeal and grassy complexity. Lovely, frisky entry that doubles up in the palate – lemony tang, more stone fruits and a lilt of grapefruit and green apple acidity to close. Massively drinkable yet piques interest for fine detail and lacy complexity. Doesn’t try too hard; just rewards youthful drinking. I’m up for it.”
