2017 Robinson Chardonnay

$60.00

The Wine
This wine is made from specially selected fruit from Hugh and Isabelle Robinson’s vineyard on the Old Moorooduc Road. Our ‘single vineyard’ Estate wines celebrate the individual character of certain special sites around the Moorooduc area.
Bright lemon gold in colour with a highly fragrant nose of candied lemon and grapefruit peel, honey, blossom, wholewheat toast and butter.  On the palate, the wine is fresh, bright and tangy with lovely intense lemon and grapefruit flavours, roasted buckwheat and lemon barley water.  Long and flavoursome, with salty notes on the finish.
Match to grilled king prawns, scallops or freshly caught white fish (we like local flathead) fried in a light tempura batter.

Description

The 2017 Vintage.

The 2017 vintage began with some early difficulties but turned out well, producing small quantities of high-quality wine.  High wind and rain during flowering resulted in some uneven fruit set and smaller crops than preferred, but mild, even conditions after that produced beautiful slow ripening of small bunches with lovely flavours, concentration and firm acidity in the finished wines.
