Barossa Valley E Minor Chardonnay 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Pale straw in colour with a green hue, this wine displays lifted ripe citrus aromas, with a touch of stone fruit, and very faint, background oak. The palate is firm and fruit driven with a touch of creaminess, finishing crisp with citrus and peach notes.

Barossa Valley Estate (BVE) was formed in 1984 by 80 third and fourth generation grape growers who took control of their destiny by forming a co-operative and produce their own wine. Combining their skills and blending their grapes from across the Barossa Valley, they rode out the hard times and built for the future. Every BVE wine is made in the reflection of our world-famous E&E Black Pepper Shiraz. Crafted from 100% Barossa Valley fruit our wines highlight the true expression of the richness and character of the region. In 1984, the consumption of red wine was declining. Offering handsome subsidies, the federal government urged growers to pull out their ancient Shiraz vines and replace them with Chardonnay. But there were 80 third and fourth generation Barossa Valley grape growers who refused. Stubbornness became their strength. Instead of trying to sell the grapes to winemakers for little reward, they decided to take control of their own destiny by forming a cooperative and making their own wine. Barossa Valley Estate (BVE) was formed. Read less

Pallid chardonnay. Not much aroma and a slightly rubbery taste and aroma that mixed with the apple and citrus on the palate. Not terribly well-balanced.

88 Points - Wine Advocate Wine Advocate ...Chardonnay E Minor did not go through malolactic fermentation while receiving three months exposure to French oak. Medium straw-colored, it offers green apple and pear aromas leading to a nicely balanced, smooth textured wine with dry flavors, good acidity and solid length. Drink it over the next 1-2 years. Score: 88. Jay Miller, July 2008. Crafted in the reflection of our E&E we are proud to present our new E Minor range and pays tribute to the rich cultural and musical influence of the early Barossa Valley settlers. Quality and value ensure these wine deliver quality well above their price.
