2002 Orlando Jacob's Creek Chardonnay
Notes sourced from Orlando.
After harvest, the grapes were crushed and then must chilled with minimal skin contact. The juice was then clarified and fermented at a cool temperature to retain the fresh natural Chardonnay grape flavours. After fermentation, the wine had extended yeast lees contact and partial malolactic fermentation. French oak wasused in the fermentation of some components of this wine to add subtle nutty, toasty flavours.
Medium straw yellow colour with deep vibrant green hues. Intense nose with white peach & melon fruit with a very subtle hint of nutty oak and buttery complexity. On the palate there are peach melon fruit flavours with a tangy citrus component that gives the wine great finesse and length. The texture is soft and creamy and balanced by a fresh acid finish.
