Pipers Brook Estate Chardonnay 2014
Sourced entirely from vineyards in the Pipers Brook region of northeastern Tasmania, the Pipers Brook Estate Chardonnay has fresh cool climate acidity, rich classic fruit charm in a well-balanced style. This wine was produced from our well-established low cropping vines overlooking Bass Strait. This coastal influence provides the vines natural vigor control and balance.
Hand-picked from high density blocks up to 40yo, wild-fermented in French oak (10-15% new), a small portion mlf. This is a lovely chardonnay; its bouquet provides gently funky complexity, and the wine glides across the palate as if it had ball bearing moccasins on its feet. The fruit/oak balance is perfect, the fruit flavours equally split between stone fruit, apple and citrus.
