1999 Warburn Estate Show Reserve Chardonnay

Griffith, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA
$18.99 Bottle
  • Closure: Cork

Warburn is trying very hard to produce both affordablity and quality, and for a producer from a 'non trendy' area their efforts are beginning to pay off. This wine has spent seven months on lees in American and French oak, and in order to maximise complexity, the barrels were rolled over on a weekly basis, thus giving the wine greater lees contact. Deep straw colour. The nose is quite pronounced and dominated by cinnamon and butterscotch with biscuit in the background. The palate is full bodied, generous with butterscotch and cinnamon dominant, perhaps a little too strong, leaving the peachy fruit flavours subdued. Clean crisp acid finish with cinnamon persisting long onto the aftertaste. Cellar 3-4 years.

Retasted: April 2001
Bright yellow, brassy gold colour, almost luminescent and unnatural in appearance. The nose displays a typical formula made, oak influenced Chardonnay, with aroma of butterscotch, yeast lees, vanillan oak and cinnamon notes. The palate has body with flavours of peach and tropical fruit, followed by an unusual dry and dusty end flavour. Creamy texture, followed by a long cinnamon, butterscotch and tropical fruits aftertaste. A fat river Chardonnay!

RATING: 81/100

VALUE: XXX/5

Retased: February 2002
Matured in a combination of French and American oak. The wine has spent 7 months on yeast lees. Bright, golden colour, with subtle green hue. The nose displays a very strong butterscotch top note, with yeast lees and nuances of honey. Full bodied palate, with again butterscotch being dominant, over a layer of nut and spice. Coarse back palate, followed by butterscotch and citrus aftertaste.
