Item No. 49557

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: Pale straw with brilliant green hues. Nose: Plenty of melon and nectarine fruit characters with some tropical overtones. A pleasant creamy and butterscotch character and sweet nut influence adds complexity. Palate: Full flavoured and rich with excellent varietal fruit and perfectly balanced oak integration. Fruit flavours have been complexed by yeast contact and creamy malolactic fermentation has given the wine a pleasant softness and low acid finish. Serving and cellaring suggestions: A white for everyday drinking and casual entertaining, Koonunga Hill Chardonnay is made to be enjoyed now or cellared for up to two years. It is ideal with most entrees and white meat dishes, especially chicken.
