Food Pairings for Trentham Chardonnay
Almost half a century ago, the first vines were planted at Trentham Cliffs in far west New South Wales. Trentham Estate is part of the former sheep station called 'Trentham Cliffs' which was settled in the 1930's by the Chanter family. In 1948-49 the riverfront was developed into horticultural properties, and so began the settlement of Trentham Cliffs. Trentham Estate is a small boutique winery specialising in varietal grape growing and production, situated on the New South Wales side of the Murray River, some 15km from Mildura. The Murphy family were pioneers who first established vineyards at Merbein in the Sunraysia area in 1909. John Murphy, who bought Trentham Estate, died in 1997 leaving his sons Patrick and Anthony as the Estate's viticulturist and chief winemaker. Each brother is an expert in his particular field. Trentham Estate is one of the quality-focused Murray Valley estates that have been changing the way we regard wines from this hot inland region. Once home to oceans of forgettable vin ordinaire, the best wines are now worthy of comparison with those from more esteemed places, and economies of scale still keep prices low. This chardonnay is great value, offering well-concentrated melon and mango-like varietal cues with some creamy richness and a balanced seasoning of spicy oak. The palate has a tangy flavour, smooth, lush texture, good persistence and a long, dry finish. Great with chicken and turkey dishes, seafood and creamy cheeses
