2017 Nikkal Wines Chardonnay

2017 Nikkal Wines Chardonnay
Yarra Valley

This chardonnay is a blend of fruit from two vineyards, Upper Ngumby in Yarra Glen and the cooler Morgan Vineyard in Seville.  

Harvested in February, tipped directly to the press and then fermented with some juice solids in seasoned French oak barrels. After fermentation the wine was left for a further six months prior to bottling in Spring.

Lemon curd, stone fruits and pears dominate the aromatics of this wine. The appealing nose is supported by generous fruit weight and intensity, and a fresh drive of natural juice acidity.

The palate is not only refreshing, but also filled with textural elements derived from the time the wine spends in French oak barrels, contributing richness.

Nikkal Chardonnay 2017

A lovely Chardonnay release from Kate Goodman. With a striking label, this is a damn easy wine to kick back with. Better still, any friends you have who see Chardonnay as dense, weighty and buttery - throw them a glass of this. Conversion is sure to follow.

Lemon juice and lemon curd, an ever so subtle touch of biscuity nuances perch in the corner. Delicate touches of white-fleshed nectarine consume the mouth. Textural appeal from whole bunch pressing and six months of seasoned oak unfurls through the mouth leaving a delicate stamp. Fruit and acid are balanced well with a squeeze of grapefruit lingering for good measure.

A delicious wine well worth the money. Drink now to three years. 91/100
