“A consistently attractive, top-value wine.”

Spy Valley always offer that great mix of quality and value in their wines and this Chardonnay is no exception. There are no short cuts in either the vineyard or the winemaking – hand harvested, free run juice, wild ferment in barrel and full lees contact, this is the stuff of 'reserve' quality wines. This 2016 is drinking beautifully at present.

Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"On the nose, cashew nut, peach and nougat like barrel influences. Fine acidity is balanced by a generous palate weight with a saline persistence. Handpicked over six separate passes before gentle whole cluster pressing. Free run full solids juice only is fermented entirely in barrels with around 75% being natural fermentation. After 11 months on full lees the barrels are selected and blended prior to bottling."

4 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"The distinctive 2016 vintage is a single-vineyard wine, hand-picked, barrel-fermented and oak-aged for nearly a year. Light lemon/green, with a creamy bouquet, it is still youthful, with ripe grapefruit-like flavours, showing excellent delicacy, very restrained oak, a slightly minerally thread and a dry, smooth finish. Drink now onwards."
