Tasting Notes

Our Outback Jack Chardonnay is light yet creamy with tropical flavours of peach, pineapple and citrus, leading to a long and satisfying finish. This wine is best enjoyed chilled and served with chicken dishes or simply on its own.

Heavy rain in the Riverina just before vintage affected some of the earlier varieties, with sugar levels a little lower than expected for the Chardonnay. The fruit was picked in the first weeks of February and crushed, de-stemmed, chilled and transferred to the press. The juice is then clarified and fermented at temperatures of 14° – 16°C using a carefully selected yeast to optimise varietal expression. Finally, the wine is blended and filtered for bottling.

 

*Vintage may vary. Every effort is made to ensure the current vintage is displayed, however variations can occur.
