Pipers Brook Chardonnay 2015, Pipers Brook, Tasmania, Australia
100% Chardonnay with 9 months in oak.
Tasmania is producing the finest cool climate Chardonnay and the Pipers Brook fruit for this Chardonnay was handpicked in excellent condition. With notes of peach, honeysuckle, melon and white grapefruit with subtle oak spice on the nose. Pristine flavours of nectarine, sweet citrus, vanilla bean and lemon sorbet. Lingering and vibrant acidity with a long finish of bright citrus and seashell minerality. This is a wine of elegance and finesse. Judicious use of oak, 9 months in barrel, has introduced fine oak tannins to give structure, this wine combines persistence of flavour with elegance and finesse.
