Chardonnay Show Reserve Hunter Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The Rosemount Show Reserve wines pay tribute to the great wine regions of Australia and their ability to produce defining examples of celebrated varietals. This range allows us to express the particular regional characteristics of each wine made in the true Rosemount . Crafted from premium parcels of grapes these wines receive additional maturation in the winery cellars, enabling them to develop the distinctive bouquet and rich varietal flavors for which their region is renowned. The growing season was cool and dry and ripening conditions were ideal. Extreme heat in December and January reduced crop sizes but resulted in high quality fruit. The vintage was very early as a result of the heat. The nose is complex with aromas of cashew, peach, pear and nectarine. The palate has great persistence of flavor and good length. The stone fruit aromas follow onto the palate, gaining a creamy, almost smoky complexity from the oak maturation. Traces of minerality add to the richness of fruit.
