2009 Knights Bridge Chardonnay West Block

Our Estate Chardonnay is planted on alluvial soils in the benchland of Knights Valley, supplementing the near perfect harvest weather for Chardonnay production. 2009 had a long, cool growing season which yielded intense complex fruit.

Shimmering gold in color with a slight green hue, and a nose of sweet cream, spiced pear and honeysuckle. The palate is wonderfully layered and rich, with créme caramel, pecan and quince. The finish is long and shows additional notes of citrus and sweet oak.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Shimmering gold in color with a slight green hue, and a nose of sweet cream, spiced pear and honeysuckle. The palate is wonderfully layered and rich, with créme caramel, pecan and quince. The finish is long and shows additional notes of citrus and sweet oak.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were harvested at 26º brix, pressed cold at the winery, and allowed to settle for 24 hours in tank. The juice was transferred to 100% new Saury and Francoise Frere barrels to ferment. After fermentation the barrels were stirred every week for over a year. The wine is bottled un-fined and unfiltered.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy this wine now through 2019 with oak plank grilled salmon with roasted Fuji pears and a citrus buerre blanc sauce. This is a rich wine that can match well with a range of foods from fish to game. Exploring ‘nontypical’ chardonnay pairings will lead to delightful surprises.
