Grosset Wines-Piccadilly-Chardonnay-2010-750mL

While cool climate Australian chardonnay garners accolades and defies the tapering off of sales of the variety in this country, the Grosset ‘Piccadilly’ continues to show a consistency style.
The current release shares with the previous three vintages the finer, leaner, tighter, lower-in-alcohol style that Jeff Grosset made in the 1990s. These are subtle chardonnays that appear delicate and restrained on release yet reward the patient by being more ageworthy than most Australian examples of the variety.

 

Tasting notes:

The hallmark of this 2010 chardonnay from the Adelaide Hills’ Piccadilly Valley is its purity of fruit. There are intense nectarine, white peach and grapefruit flavours, all tightly coiled and vibrant in the mid-palate, seamlessly integrated so that it shows little evidence of its cedary oak. There are some quartzy, minerally notes on its long, zesty finish. It has the purity of flavour, weight, tightness of structure and bright natural acidity to suggest it will age as well as previous vintages of the Grosset ‘Piccadilly’ Chardonnay.

Only 450 dozen produced.

Keermont-Terrasse-Chenin Blanc Chardonnay-2013-750mL

Grape Varieties: 67% Chenin Blanc, 17% Chardonnay, 9% Viognier, 7% Sauvignon Blanc

 

The Keermont Terrasse white blend derives its name from the terraced vineyards in the Stellenbosch mountains from which the grapes are harvested. The backbone of this blend is Chenin blanc from a 43 year old un-irrigated vineyard called 'Riverside' and is complimented by Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc and Viognier. All grapes used in producing our wines are grown on Keermont Vineyards. Small parcels of grapes are selected according to optimal ripeness and harvested by hand. The grapes are vinified gently and naturally following traditional techniques. White wines are fermented in seasoned French oak barrels and then spend a further 12 months maturing on the lees. Bottling is carried out by hand without filtration. Strong November winds (discussed in the vintage report) resulted in a very low yield on the more susceptible Sauvignon blanc vineyard, but fortunately the other blocks were not as badly affected. A total of 21 barrels of 2013 Terrasse was produced yielding 9450 bottles.


Tasting notes: A polished light yellow gold colour, this wine has a bouquet of citrus blossom with hazelnut, lemon grass and butterscotch undertones. The wine has a soft sweet entry with a racy linear acidity. Ripe citrus and stone fruit flavours evolve into a lovely lingering dry earthy finish. This is a textured white wine with layers of flavour.

Penfolds-Yattarna-Chardonnay-1999-750mL

Complex and tightly structured, with intense lime and grapefruit on the front palate, which slowly changes into a mixture of citrus and pear. Finely chiseled acidity, cedary oak and lees yeastiness give excellent depth and graciously offset the richly textured underlying fruit. Finely interwoven and seamlessly presented, this is a standout Chardonnay of impeccable pedigree with an extended, elegant finish.

Villa Maria-Single Vineyard Taylors Pass-Sauvignon Blanc-2016-750mL

WINEMAKER’S COMMENT

The Single Vineyard Taylors Pass Sauvignon Blanc has lifted floral aromatics of jasmine and elderflower, with vibrant gooseberry and passionfruit notes.

This leads into a pure and concentrated palate with snow pea, nettles and punchy grapefruit and lime zest. This classy Sauvignon Blanc showcases finely woven acidity and textured savory, biscuit notes providing a long lingering, complex finish.
