Viking Wines Grand Chardonnay 2014

  • Variety: Chardonnay
    Region: Eden Valley, South Australia

    Winemaker's Notes

  • Colour: Wine is vibrant green with a pale straw hue colour.

  • Bouquet: Fantastic depth to its varietal expression yet still quite focused with white peach, nectarine and melon with an ever so gently touch of toasty oak.

  • Palate: Fresh and zesty in its youth with assorted citrus notes, this is in a word an “elegant” Chardonnay.

  • Cellaring: Drinking now or cellar up to 2 years.

  • Winemaking Details
    Handpicked from a single vineyard located on the outskirts of Angaston in Eden Valley. The wine was crushed and de-stemmed prior to the pressing process; French oak barriques were used for fermentation. The ferment was slow and cool with several weeks of lees contact post ferment. After the wine was clarified and filtered it was bottled to retain as much fruit flavour as possible. Only 300 dozen were produced highlighting the incredible attention to detail and care taken with our small batch winemaking.

    Made to drink upon release while the fruit flavour is at its most fresh and vibrant, although will develop more complexity over the next couple of years for those who enjoy their Chardonnay with a touch of age.
