VINEYARDAngove Organic Chardonnay is sourced from organically certi? ed vineyards in the Riverland and McLaren Vale regions of South Australia.Vintage 2014 in the heartland of the Australian wine industry came with a rush after a cool Spring meant many varieties were slow to get started in their growing. As the weather warmed through January and February it all started happening and careful attention in the vineyard was needed to ensure picking occurred at peak ? avour ripeness.
WINEMAKING Picked late at night to harvest the grapes as cold as possible the grapes were transported to the winery and pressed using modern membrane tank presses. After cold settling the clear juice was carefully racked to cooled fermentation tanks and inoculated with selected yeasts. Cool fermentation was followed by minimal handling ? ltration and bottling at the Angove winery.
TASTING NOTES COLOUR Pale straw with olive green hues. AROMA Stonefruit, citrus and cantaloupe ? avours combine with savoury oak on the nose. FLAVOUR On the palate the wine has a soft texture and good length with an elegant ? nish.
