Curious Chardonnay Sauvignon Blanc 2014
Region: South Eastern Australia
Varietal: 75% Chardonnay 25% Sauvignon Blanc
Best Consumed: 2014 -2019
A fresh, fruit driven wine displaying aromas of citrus and tropical fruits and some herbaceous notes. Bright Chardonnay flavours of melon and fig combine with the grassy and grapefruit flavours from the Sauvignon Blanc. The wine is crisp and refreshing, with a long clean finish.
This wine was crafted from 75% Chardonnay grapes and 25% Sauvignon Blanc grapes, sourced primarily from our vineyards in the Murray Darling Region of South Eastern Australia. The grapes were picked and crushed during the cool of night so as to retain their fresh, varietal flavours – which is especially important when using aromatic varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc.
Wine Harvest Notes
The growing season in 2014 presented some challenges including frost in late 2013 and extreme heat in early 2014. Once harvesting began in late January we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the fruit and the resulting wines. Yields were down but quality was up this year. Whites have good varietal character, with great flavour, whilst the reds have beautiful colour and flavour intensity.
An easy drinking, refreshing wine style which is a great match with poultry such as garlic and lemon roasted chicken breast or oven roasted spatchcock.
