Angove Family Crest Chardonnay 2019 (Adelaide Hills, South Australia) "...citrus, nectarine, honeydew..."
Sourced from a single vineyard just outside the small township of Charleston, midway between Woodside and Lobethal in this premier cool climate region. This exquisite site contains vines over 20 years of age that are just coming into their prime. A mixture of sandy loams, loams and clay loams over clay subsoils vary in structure and create a wide array of flavours within this unique site.
"Light straw with green hues. Aromas of cantaloupe, white peach, lemon and smoky French oak. The clean and refined mineral palate has good length and a delightfully fresh finish." - Gold, CWWSC 2020
"Beautifully lifted aromas of white nectarine, lime leaf and green melon lead to a creamy palate of vanilla and lemon curd." - 92 Points, DWWA 2020
"This good-value 2019 chardonnay is green-tinted light gold, passionfruit-scented and fresh nectarine flavoured on the front palate. The middle palate has pear, mineral, crushed almond and cashew oak and a slatey acid finish. It comes from two Adelaide Hills vineyards, one which lost all its 2020 crop to fire and smoke taint and the other was undamaged."- John Lewis (Canberra Times)
"The grapes for this wine were sourced from a small vineyard in the heart of the Adelaide Hills, South Australia's preeminent cool climate region. Pale yellow with green hues. White peach, lemon peel and smoky French oak aromas lead to a crisp lifted palate, while a soft creamy texture gives length followed by a clean fresh finish." - winery notes
