Eden Road’s flagship Chardonnay has always been a blend of the finest fruit from Courabyra. From a strong year, this is a juicy-rich, layered, high country Chardonnay. Beautiful aromas of stone fruit, lemon curd and brioche in harmony with smoky, scented oak undertones and a long, refreshing finish.
All the fruit was handpicked, whole-bunch pressed and transferred directly into French oak barrels (30% new) for fermentation on full solids.
A sumptuous chardonnay hand-picked across select parcels of barrel fermented, high country fruit. It boasts generous aromas of toasted hazelnut, nougat, caramel and cashew segueing to a ripe, layered palate soused with white peach. The generosity of flavour belies the streamlined, mineral-clad finish and lowish alcohol (12.8%). 95 points, Ned Goodwin, Winecompanion.com.au
