2016 Chardonnay Miamup, Howard Park, Western Australia
"Peach and pineapple aromas under-girded by vanilla and toasted grain notes feature in the 2016 Miamup Chardonnay. This is a solid, mid-tier Chardonnay that avoids any excesses: not too oaky, not too fat, not too tropical. It's a balanced, medium-bodied crowd pleaser to drink over the next year or two." Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate, Dec 2017.
The most critical site selection is applied to vineyards growing Miamup Chardonnay. Each location adds to the complexity of the wine due to the soils, aspects, clones and microclimates unique to the respective sites. Barrel fermeted and matured in fine grain French oak for 9 months.
