2015 Alana Chardonnay

Alana Estate Chardonnay 2015, 4 Stars

Bright, light golden-yellow colour, paler on the edge.  This has an elegantly proportioned nose with bright and aromatic white and yellow stonefruits with finely integrated notes of nutty oak and creamy barrel-ferment, and nuances of flinty lees.  The aromatics are fresh and lively.  Medium-bodied, the palate has gently sweet and succulent flavours of white and yellow stonefruits, some tropical fruit elements, harmoniously entwined with subtle creamy barrel-ferment textures and soft, nutty oak.  The palate has good balance with a soft, smooth, textural flow and fine, lacy acidity.  A little flintiness unfolds and the wine carries to an elegant finish.  This is an elegantly proportioned, sweet-fruited Chardonnay with stonefruit and tropical fruit flavours, balanced by creamy and nutty oak on a smooth palate.  Serve with poultry and pork dishes over the next 4+ years. , fully barrel-fermented to 12.7% alc., the wine aged 10 months on lees in approx. 20% new oak, undergoing 100% MLF.  17.5/20  Mar 2018  RRP $33.00
