2020 Calliope – Chardonnay 750ml
$32.00 inc. GST
Bright pale straw colour with a light tinge of green around the outskirts and a watery hue. Ripe peach, apricot and honeycomb scents show good elevation followed by hints of butterscotch finger, toast and spicy nougat. Creamy and rich, mouth filling flavours of spicy ripe peaches, apricot, honeycomb and toast overlay a back drop of almonds and subtle butterscotch. Dry balanced finish with a textured medium to long aftertaste.
The Calliope Range is released in limited quantities and only in exceptional years benefitting the standards we set for our premium wines. Grapes for the Calliope range are hand picked from our century old vines to produce wines of great intensity and flavour.
The Calliope Chardonnay fruit is sourced from a select premium cool climate vineyard in the King Valley. Harvested at night then gently pressed producing pristine fruit expression. Partial barrel fermentation in new French barriques, extended maturation with lees, stirring adds further complexity.
