2020 Victoria Chardonnay
This wine has been specially created to honour the elegance, strength and pure class of our dear friend Victoria.
Brilliant lemon colour. The Victoria Chardonnay displays perfumed notes of fresh lemon peel, nectarine, white peach and vanilla. Proceeding to the fresh, medium bodied palate displaying the perfect balance of ripe stone fruit and bright citrus fruits. With intense flavours of white peach, nectarine and kaffir lime complimented by fine grained brioche, cream and spice oak complexity.
McLeish Estate started harvesting the Chardonnay on the 19th of January.
The optimal conditions prevailed with long warmer days, the Vintage conditions throughout the white harvest continued to be extreme heat waves of 40 degrees plus leading to excellent ripeness and primary fruit characters.
McLeish Estate vineyards are in Australia’s oldest wine growing region; the Hunter Valley, planted in 1985. Our Chardonnay is hand harvested from vines grown in friable red duplex loam soil– Fruit thinning was carried out on the single vineyard to consistently producing the purest and brightest signatures of Hunter Chardonnay
