2016 Mantra Chardonnay

$35.00

This sub-regional blend of Karridale & Wilyabrup Chardonnay mixes the high notes with the bass to deliver a wine with delicacy, poise, generosity and texture. Textural, rich yet restrained, flavours of almond-meal, biscuit and white chocolate, cashew nut, lemongrass, ginger, dried herb, and a line of sweet lemon drive the palate to a long and complex finish.

Ideally lightly chilled – with antipasti, chargrilled veges or tomato-based pasta, pizza and risotto.

Description

A blend of 75% Wilyabrup and 25% Karridale Chardonnay. The Wilyabrup portion was de-stemmed while the handpicked Karridale portion was whole-bunch pressed in basket. Both components were sent straight to barrel to begin wild ferment in new (25%) and aged French oak. Partial malo-lactic fermentation was allowed to occur naturally in two barrels and regular lees-stirring was undertaken over eight months prior to bottling. Unfined/unfiltered.

Generosity and richness are the hallmarks of the Wilyabrup fruit, while the Karridale portion provides aromatics, minerality and vibrancy. Nutty fig, melon and white peach lead the fresh fruit highlights on the nose, while some lifted florals, musk and vanillan oak add to the aromatics. Textural, rich yet restrained, flavours of almond-meal, biscuit and white chocolate, cashew nut, lemongrass, ginger, dried herb, and a line of sweet lemon drive the palate to a long and complex finish.

Ideally lightly chilled – with antipasti, chargrilled veges or tomato-based pasta, pizza and risotto.
