Elderton Estate Chardonnay 2023: Elegance Redefined

Discover the exceptional Elderton Estate Chardonnay 2023, a true masterpiece in the world of fine wines. This vintage stands out, thanks to the gentle growing conditions that prevailed throughout the year, facilitating a steadier ripening process and thereby enriching the wine’s flavour profile. Distinguished by its meticulous harvest, conducted a week later than the preceding year, the grapes were picked in the serene, early hours to ensure they retained their fresh, vibrant qualities. Upon their arrival at the winery, an immediate crushing and pressing off skins was performed. The juice then underwent a cold settling process before fermentation, with a notable proportion of light, fluffy lees contributing to the ferment. This process was initiated in tanks, and as it progressed, the fermenting juice was carefully stirred and transferred into a mix of new and seasoned French oak barrels. There, it completed its primary and malolactic fermentations, evolving into the distinguished Elderton Estate Chardonnay.

Tasting Profile:

  • Style: The Elderton Estate Chardonnay is the epitome of elegance, offering a focused flavour profile that commands attention.
  • Colour: It presents a beautiful pale straw colour, inviting the eye to take a closer look.
  • Aroma: A vibrant and inviting nose features citrus notes, complemented by stone fruit and enriched with subtle touches of cashew, almond meal, and flint.
  • Palate: On the palate, it delivers layers of lemon citrus and white peach, interspersed with hints of rockmelon. The experience is rounded off with a smooth texture, underpinned by soft acidity and a rich crème brulee character. Toasty oak nuances weave through the fruit, culminating in a seamless and lasting finish.
  • Maturation: Aged in French oak for eight months, the Elderton Estate Chardonnay benefits from sur lie ageing and batonnage, which add depth and complexity to its profile.
