The nose is a fusion of tropical fruits, white peach and melon with elegant, spicy oak derived characters. A pure, yet complex example of Margaret River Chardonnay with half the wine matured for eight months, with minimal winemaker intervention, in French oak barriques, and the remainder in stainless steel tanks to retain fruit freshness and vibrancy.
The palate mimics the nose with a complex backbone of French oak and focused acidity complimenting the fruit as well as providing length and structure. This vintage has sensational cellaring potential. Aged Ashbrook Chardonnay typically displays white peach, honey nougat, toast and spice characters and retains an impressive level of freshness, vibrancy and length.
The finished wine is cellared on the Estate for another 12 months to ensure total balance and harmonization between fruit purity and oak complexity.
