Geoff Merrill Chardonnay Reserve
5 stjerner i Finansbureauet:
"Charmerende Chardonnay fra Australien med fedladen næse med smørnoter og cremet og blød mund med fine vanilje og toastnoter fra fadet akkompagneret af let citrus præg og salt i den lange eftersmag."

Bouquet'en viser honning og melon med en anelse egetræ fra 8 måneders fadlagring.
Stor smag med en palet af indtryk. Vinen smager fremragende nu.

James Halliday’s Wine Companion

An 80 / 20% blend from McLaren Vale and Coonawarra; sensitive use of French oak (8 months maturation) has protected the

elegance of the white peach, apple and melon fruit; good acidity also builds length.

Rating 94



TASTING NOTES

The colour is a light to mid straw with strong green hues and excellent depth. The aroma really leaps from the glass to display excellent French oak characters up front which slowly move aside revealing the depth of fruit beneath. Spice, straw and melon notes come through with hints of mandarin and orange pith. French oak fermentation and maturation has added complex notes of cream, toast and cashew. The wine instantly fills the palate with flavour. The mouthfeel is full and flavoursome, finishing clean and fruity with the

overwhelming urge to try it again to recapture that initial generosity. A wonderful wine to drink young that will also become more complex as the wine develops over the next 5-8 years and greatly reward your patience.



WINEMAKERS COMMENTS

The 2013 vintage was a welcome return to a fairly ‘normal’ vintage after the extremely low yields of 2012 and record wet of 2011. We had good winter and spring rains and only a small reduction in yield across a few varieties. The ripening period had a small heat ‘hiccup’ but the vines made it through unscathed and ripening continued extremely well enabling us to pick at full flavour ripeness.
