Bay of Fires Chardonnay 2020 - 750ml 13%Regular price $55.00
The Bay of Fires wines were born of a desire to showcase the best possible cool climate varietal wines Tasmania can offer, combining fruit intensity, refinement and persistence of flavour. The 2020 Chardonnay represents the continued evolution of this wine as we explore and develop vineyard resources. Our philosophy is to nurture elegance and develop ripe flavour profiles.
Medium straw in colour, with a green hue. Lively aromas of white nectarine and fresh limes. Toasty oak with a hint of lemon curd richness and just a whiff of classic Bay of Fires flinty funk. A juicy but refined palate with a backbone of mineral acidity and flavours of grapefruit and lime. The zippy mouthfeel is rounded with malolactic softness and structured with a sprinkling of charry French oak. The fruit for this Chardonnay was hand harvested from the East Coast, Tamar Valley, Coal River Valley and Derwent River Valley regions of Tasmania. Lifted aromas of peach and preserved lemon precede a long, textured palate, carefully balancing vibrant fruit, creamy texture and French oak. A true cool climate wine style.
