Pipers Brook Estate Chardonnay 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Vibrant, pale green golden straw Bouquet: Delicate and steely aroma’s, lush green fruits, apple, pear, citrus and limes, washed river bed quartz, hints of rock salt and mineral complexity, underlying Stone fruit linger on the palate, with the soft tones of freshly toasted chestnuts and vanilla bean spice from fermentation in fine French oak barriques. Palate: The palate is clean, fresh, vibrant and mineral tight, a new direction in style for our estate chardonnay, with longer more mineral stream lined acid balance, less obtrusive oak, a greater harmony between fruit intensity and palate cleaning, the retention of higher than previous levels of malic acid, and only some malolactic fermentation has lead this wine down a path of rejuvenated elegance, rather than that of the fat and full style of yesteryear. Its now long and satisfying, the fruit is concentrated and complex and refreshing, offering a classic Puligny aromatic profile of minerals, white peach, apple, and pear all tightly gathered together on the palate with the seamless fresh crisp acid and a structure for aging. Food suggestions: Tasmanian smoked salmon; seafood terrine with cray meat or scallops; grilled lobster in butter; goat cheese salad; salad of roast baby beets, cumin, red onion, feta & balsamic; fresh Tasmanian seafood salads; Vietnamese dishes.
