Mountadam High Eden 'Estate' Chardonnay 2016
On release the wine is pale straw in colour. It displays classic Chardonnay characters of peach, nectarine and fresh figs. French oak barrel fermentation and maturation gives the wine secondary aromas of cashew nuts and mixed spices.The palate has a complex mix of peach, citrus, cashew nuts, subtle truffle and spice characters throughout.The mid palate is round and creamy but a clean citrusy acid backbone provides length and persistence to the wine.The wine is complex with no single character dominating the wine.The flavour of the wine persists long after it has left the mouth.The wine will continue to reward careful cellaring for up to and possibly beyond 2026. 97 Points - James Halliday
James Halliday – "From the oldest plantings on the estate, fermented in French oak, matured for 12-14 months before a barrel selection for this wine, which is one of the best produced in the Eden Valley as a whole. It has fluid grace and effortless power, the fruit flavours at the midpoint of the stone fruit (white peach)/citrus (grapefruit) spectrum. Lovely wine. 14% alc".
