Richard Angove was very lucky to have grown up in a winemaking family. Since 1886, five generations of his family have worked in winemaking and grape growing. In 2008 he worked harvest in the beautiful Tamar Valley in northern Tasmania. He just loved the landscape, vineyards and flavours of the wines. Many years later when the opportunity arose to work with a number of small growers to create a range of small batch wines, he could not resist the opportunity, and so Lost Farm Wines was born.
Lost Farm Chardonnay is a complex and elegant Chardonnay that shows white peach, melon and subtle oak with a creaminess and texture that is all linked together with vibrant acidity. A classic cool climate Chardonnay bursting with flavour.
From a single vineyard in Northern Tamar Valley overlooking the Tamar River. Handpicked and whole bunch pressed into French oak for fermentation and maturation. French oak barrels and weekly lees stirring add to the complexity and class of this premium Tasmanian Chardonnay. Only 660 cases made! Gold Medal - Royal Perth Show 2020
Fruit from Tamar Valley growers. Sophisticated Tasmanian chardonnay, confidently uniting the struck-flint complexity of fermentation with classy French oak cashew nut notes and the cool tension of lemon and white peach. The creamy texture of barrel work harmonises with crystalline acidity, well-married to fruit concentration and body. It holds every detail through an enduring finish.
