Notes sourced from Southern Cross Wines.
Mamre Brook is the name of the original home at the Saltram Estate at Angaston in the Barossa Valley. The home was built in 1844 and is the traditional home of Saltram's chief winemaker.The 1998 Mamre Brook Chardonnay is sourced from the Eden Valley (20%) and the Barossa Valley (80%). 1998 was a very good vintage for Chardonnay in the Barossa and Eden Valleys. Around 70% of the wine was fermented in French oak barrels of which 50% was new. The wine remained in French oak for a total of nine months.The wine is a pale straw colour with subtle green tinges. On the nose the wine offers classic varietal aromas of pear and peach and has hints of lemon butter and toast characters from barrel maturation. The palate offers sweet fruit flavours of melon and pear and long flavours balanced by crisp, refreshing acidity. This wine is slightly richer and bolder in flavour than the 1997 vintage. Cellar 2-4 years. 13.4% alcohol volume.
