2021 Passel Estate Chardonnay

Passel Estate2021 Passel Estate Chardonnay

2021 Chardonnay

Margaret River, Western Australia

White pear, jasmine, cinnamon, then white fruit, nectarines and brioche; a bristling natural acidity leads to finish laced with crushed granite and lemon grass.

From $65.00 per bottle

    Description

    Tasting Notes: White pear, jasmine and hints of freshly zested limes and cinnamon on the nose. The palate enters focused and elegant, a pure core of white fruits wrapped in viscous textures of nectarines and brioche, driven by a bristling natural acidity to a finish laced with crushed granite and lemon grass. Persistent, pure and textured. Drink now for freshness or be rewarded with cellaring.

    Winemaking notes: Our Chardonnay fruit was harvested in the early hours of the morning, loaded into the press cold, and gently separated from its skins. The very slightly cloudy juice was cold settled for a day and then racked. Fermentation took place in French oak barriques, 35% of which were new. The wine was then left to mature in barrel on its lees for 10 months, with bâttonage occurring every 2 weeks. It received a light fining prior to filtration and bottling.

    "Impressive young chardonnay from this ideal cooler vintage. Aromas of peach and spices with a little grapefruit. The palate is neatly crafted with the light flavoursome fruit supplemented with the fine-grained oak. Has a creamy lemon curd palate with a little almond meal richness. An excellent chardonnay offering plenty"

    "This is just the kinda nose I like, white stone fruit, mealy solids, matchbox hints with an underlying richness and mid weight texture. The acid is razor sharp softened by juicy and talcum powder phenolics. Lovely and savoury finish with elegant fruit and classy oak handling."
