Freycinet Chardonnay 2019
Traditional techniques adopted from the Burgundy homeland including 100% barrel fermentation for 10 months, aiming for a lightly wooded style using French oak casks (20% new). Maturation on lees with periodic stirring was utilised for this wine.
The wine is tightly crafted and combines power with elegance. The delicate aroma features citrus and melon fruits with soft oak nuances. The palate is pristine, fresh and vibrant, revealing ripe melon, white peach and grapefruit flavours subtly supported by spicy oak and creamy textures. The finish is crisp long and seamless.
Very enjoyable as a young wine, however the rewards of cellaring over a 10 to 20 year period in good cellars with constant, cool temperatures will prove very rewarding.
