The 2016 Velvet & Willow Chardonnay is made from premium grapes grown in the higher regions of the Adelaide Hills. It has gentle aromas of citrus- limes and lemons, along with a hint of the fragrances of tropical fruit. The palate is delicious, creamy and complex, with a great degree of richness and texture for its youth, giving you a superb, satisfying mouth feel.
Cool harvested, swiftly crushed, pressed and fermented, then matured in oak barrels so as to add complexity, creaminess and richness to the wine.
Whilst this wine is excellent 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.
