McWilliam’s Cool Climate Chardonnay
Cooler climate regions provide a longer period of ripening, supporting the slow development of complex flavours and creating an elegant and balanced style of wine that partners many cuisines. In this Chardonnay the lifted and aromatic characteristics from the cooler, higher altitude vineyards in Hilltops are complemented by parcels from Gundagai that add depth and length to this unmistakeably cool climate wine.DOWNLOAD TASTING NOTES
Aromas of citrus blossom and stonefruit are supported by subtle vanillin oak and slight hint of oyster shell for complexity.
The palate is soft and fruit driven with an added creamy texture from lees stirring. Flavours of melon and stonefruit dominate and are well balanced with subtle older oak characters. The lovely natural acidity is giving the wine a nice long drive and freshness, balanced out well with a hint of sweetness.
