James Halliday – P58 clone planted by the Farr and Weir families in ’79. Whole-bunch pressed, cold-settled, fermented and matured for 9 months in French oak (75% new), minimal batonnage and partial mlf. The most striking of all the Clyde Park Chardonnays. The intensity of the fruit has managed to make light work of the new oak without any fuss, leaving the purity and elegance of the white peach fruit to occupy centre stage with only a whisper of grapefruit in the natural acidity. Made by Matt Holmes.
About This Wine
Very pale straw yellow in appearance. The lifted bouquet swirls with jasmine, marzipan, Portuguese tart, struck match and toasted oak. The vibrant palate is packed with an orchard of stone fruit (most notably white peach), cantaloupe, brioche and crunchy minerality. While this Chardonnay graces the full length of the palate in retains remarkable austerity with abundant richness and length.
