Giles Point 2000 Chardonnay
Giles Point 2000 Chardonnay
Vintage Conditions The growing season that produced the grapes to make this wine was long and cool. The cool summer ripened the grapes very slowly, which was favourable for maximum flavour development. Flavour intensity is at its peak at sugar levels that are correspondingly high.
Winemakers Comments The colour is pale straw yellow. Good apple characters with hints of peach/melon fruit on the nose. Activity medium. A fresh zingy palate typical of the tank fermented style, showing tropical melon fruit with hints of ripe fig and peach. Persistence of flavour medium with good intensity of fruit.
Food Accompaniments This style of chardonnay can be appreciated on its own or with seafood, light meat dishes and pasta.
