Our 2017 Home Block Chardonnay is a wine of subtle intensity and power, made from a small parcel of fruit taken from the ‘Home Block’ of Chardonnay within the Myrtle Point vineyard. The wine reflects the intensity of fruit character that the Myrtle Point Vineyard can produce. An intense aroma of melon and peach with a complex almond character. On the palate, initial flavours of melon and peach develop into a creamy, textured wine with nutty tones and excellent acid length.
“Only 222 dozen bottles made despite the perfect growing season, the limitation being the small parcel from within the Home Block. Pressed straight to oak (20% new) for fermentation and 11 months maturation. The fruit aromas and flavours span white peach, grapefruit and melon, the oak no more than a textural play”. 95 Points – 2021 Halliday Wine Companion
“Highly varietal and highly delicious. Pear, apple and steely stonefruit characters burst onto the palate and swing persistently through the finish. Juicy flavour aplenty, and length to impress. 93 Points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front 2019.
