The 2015 Velvet & Willow Chardonnay is made from premium grapes grown in the higher regions of the Adelaide Hills. It has beautiful aromas of citrus- limes and lemons, along with the fragrances of green apples and perhaps melons. The palate has a delicious, complex combination of rockmelon and granny smith flavours, with great richness and texture giving you a superb, satisfying mouth feel.
Cool harvested, swiftly crushed, pressed and fermented, a component of this wine was then barrel matured so as to add some oak complexity and richness to the wine.
Cellaring. Whilst this wine is rearing to go right now, if properly cellared, it will round out beautifully over the next 3-5 years as it matures, to become a classically elegant Adelaide Hills Chardonnay.
At present, this wine is an ideal accompaniment for lighter- medium style food dishes, however as it ages, it will become a fabulous aperitif wine.
