Simpson Estate

2019 Chardonnay

2019 Chardonnay
Elaine

The fruit of this elegant Chardonnay was hand-picked and hand-sorted, chilled overnight and gently whole bunch pressed straight to 38% new light toast French (Burgundian) oak barrels for 9 months.

The wine is a pale straw in colour with green highlights, whilst the bouquet displays fresh pears, citrus blossom and nuances of roasted cashew.

The palate is medium-bodied, offering bright characters of green apple, quince and lime tart.  A lovely line of acidity running through the palate provides the wine with drive, length and a crisp, lingering finish. 

Cellaring for at least 12 years from bottling.

Alcohol 13.2%

Decanter judges' commentary: "Bright with breezy lemon, yellow fruit and melon on the nose, delicate orange, chamomile and a zesty citrus acidity on the palate”.

IWC judges' commentary:  "Nose of spicy pudding with tangy palette and a toasty finish".

Bottled under Stelvin Lux.
