CH09

2009 Chardonnay Bannockburn

Tasting Date: 23 March 2012

Still very young, this wine balances power with acidity. Suggestions of sweet stone fruit balanced with oak and polished, mineral complexity. Underlying tension evident on the finish. A bright and youthful wine to be paired with rich food. Drinks well now. Patience will ultimately reveal its full potential. Drink / Hold

Tasting Date: May 2010

At this early stage of its life the wine is pert and lively with spring flowers and citrus blossom on the nose and a hint of hazelnut. The palate is smooth, racy and seamless, with a full texture, but a lithe and taught structure. It is clean and long in the finish and while delicious now, will take some bottle age to start to evolve the evident complexity that lies in wait.
