Only 0 per customer!

Limited stock
Wonderful creamy toasted hazelnut aromas, with light vanilla pod and fine woody notes. The palate is soft and rounded with some apply crispness, with plenty of toasty oak which goes on and on. It has a tight minerality with almost Riesling like acidity.

Producer Details
Located near the tiny village of Moonambel in the heart of the Pyrenees region of Western Victoria, Dalwhinnie specialise in Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. After 25 years of growing grapes, the 18 hectare vineyard is now fully mature. At 595 metres above sea-level Dalwhinnie is the highest and most remote of the Pyrenees district vineyards. Surrounded and sheltered by the highest range, located in a naturally undulating trough which falls away from the hills, forming an amphitheatre nestled into the ranges. Ownership of Dalwhinnie has remained within one family. In 1972 the remote property was purchased. The founder, Ballarat architect Ewan Jones, established the vineyard in 1976. His eldest son David, has managed it since 1983 and, with his wife, Jenny, has owned it since 1994.

In the vineyard
Winemakers comments: Our 25th vintage of Dalwhinnie Chardonnay and still in top form. The Chardonnay has evolved over the years and the development of todays style has seen a refining of viticulture techniques like using organic fertilizers and picking the grapes at optimum freshness, meaning picking very early.

In the winery
Vinification remains virtually the same except the wine now sees less oak but still the best quality French oak.

Food Recommendations
A truely foody wine, an obvious but perfect partner to this wine would be smoked trout but if you're feeling adventurous try it with a chestnut ravioli and lemon-butter sauce!
Press Quotes
2010 Vintage: " ... displays delicate white peach, under-ripe pineapple, grapefruit and citrus zest notes with hints of toast, cream and almonds. Medium-bodied, crisp and with great concentration on the plate, it finishes long and yeasty / creamy. Though approachable now, it's built to age and should cellar to 2017+. 92+ points." Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, The Wine Advocate Issue 201, 30th June 2012
