2016 Fool's Mate Chardonnay

Add To Cart
/ 750mL
SKU: 156709

An extremely complex wine with aromas of yellow peach, melon, perfume and butterscotch with hints of graphite. The palate has a rich entry with flavours of peach and apricot, tension across the mid-palate and a great length backed by fresh acidity and sea salt on the finish.

"This is a blend of fruit from all the vineyards that supply CheckMate. Fittingly, this is a Chardonnay that displays great harmony. The aromas of citrus, peach and vanilla initially are restrained, opening up with time in the glass. The wine has a rich entry on the palate leading to flavours of stone fruits. There is a hint of sea salt on the long finish."

"The predominate flavours are peach and nectarine, aided by lemon, hints of brioche, excellent minerality and a favourable palate-cleansing saline finish.  This wine was built to age and its transformation through 2023 should be fascinating"

 – Anthohny Gismondi

"A five-vineyard blend, this uses both barrel and concrete egg ferments, punched along with 60% wild yeasts. It's textured and complex, a deft mix of yellow fruits highlighted with barrel toast, concrete minerality and a streak of vanilla cream."
