Shottesbrooke, Single Vineyard Series, Chardonnay, Adelaide Hills, 2016
A richer, more mature nose with more savoury oak elements, straw like (both green and bale), stone fruit and walnut. A fuller expression with a distinct savoury quality. The seasoning of spicy oak overlays the nectarine stonefruit and grapefruit pith citrus. While regional acidity is still present, there’s a definite softening as the wine continues to develop.
