The Wicks Family has a long history of involvement in agriculture with the Woodside Vineyard following on from their Orchard and Nursery operations at Highbury. In late 1999, the 54 hectare property at Woodside was chosen and purchased for its scenic location and suitability for premium wine grape production.
A modern expression of Cool Climate Chardonnay showing an elegant balance between fruit flavours and subtle savoury complexities. Delicate integration of French oak will have you converting to the new world style. If you are a lover of Chardonnay, don’t let the price point deceive you, this is a serious wine made in small batches for you to savour and appreciate.
Fermented in stainless-steel and French oak. Matured 10–12 months in French oak (25% new). With ex-Seppelt winemaker Adam Carnaby at the helm, expectations are high. They are met in full with this terrific, fully-energised young chardonnay. Polished and focused in citrus and stone fruits, it shows additional complex ferment-derived characters as it works its way across the palate briskly. One more-ish chardonnay!
