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.
