Miles From Nowhere Chardonnay 2016
Pale green with a straw tinge.
The nose presents an impressive amount of varietal character which is fresh yet complex. The bouquet is flinty with aromas of melon and stone fruit with a hint of lemon, complemented with nutty, oak characters.
The palate expresses a purity of good fruit with flavours of crisp nectarine with hints of apricot and lemon curd. Careful oak integration through gentle stirring on yeast lees resulted in a desirably rich and creamy palate with a generous finish of hazelnuts with a tight lemon acidity to finish.
French oak for 6 months.
Warm chicken salad with peach, mango and macadamia nuts.
