Heirloom Vineyards Adelaide Hills Assen’s Fortalice Chardonnay

Variety: Chardonnay
Region: Adelaide Hills
Vintage: 2019

Pale green and gold straw, yet hinting at limpidity. Bright. Freshly shucked oyster shell bouquet intermingled with a panoply of stone fruits picked in the very early morning. Aromatics are dominated by white peach and yellow nectarine. Highly perfumed, these aromas become more exotic with time in the glass: cucumber, cantaloupe, honeysuckle, Warrigal Greens, edible seaweed. Silky yet structured; fruit depth and richness yet undercut with a shining stainless steel rail of clear, bell-like, acidity. A fresh rainwater font palate quickly flooded with fruit flavours (morning dew, on-point white peach) and then a mouth-puckering savoury and mineral finish.  

Awards:

- High-quality fruit is the essence of this wine, establishing its territory from the first sip, finesse joining supple, juicy fruit that slides effortlessly across and along the palate.  All class.  James Halliday (July 2021)
