2015 Balgownie Estate Chardonnay Bendigo

2015 Balgownie Estate Chardonnay Bendigo

Chardonnay is one of the great noble grape varieties of the world capable of producing wines of great flavour and finesse. Balgownie Estate planted chardonnay in its Bendigo vineyards in 1976 and in the ensuing years we have built an enviable reputation for the quality of our Estate chardonnay. This is a lovely wine with elegance, fruit flavour, gentle oak and impeccable balance, that is drinking beautifully as a young wine but will benefit from cellaring up to ten years.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A sensational delicate, medium-bodied wine with lovely ripe white peach character, hints of honey, cream, nougat and a touch of lemon. The palate is lovely and complex with flavours of white peach, honey, melon, cream and a hint of spice and lime, balanced by crisp acid and gentle oak. There is a beautiful creamy, textural mouthfeel in the mid-palate that gives way to a long and fine finish.
Vineyard Notes
The chardonnay vineyard was planted in Bendigo in 1976 and has matured into an exceptional vineyard producing exquisitely balanced fruit using minimal irrigation. The chardonnay grapes were hand-harvested in cool conditions at the perfect point of balance between ripeness and acidity.
Winemaker Notes
Our Estate Chardonnay was whole bunch pressed and provided free run juice with a balance of concentrated flavours, acid and notable elegance. A portion of the juice was fermented using wild yeast to enhance complexity. Barrel fermentation took place over a six week period after which the wine was aged on lees for a further eleven months. Regular batonnage (lees stirring) was employed to promote mid-palate complexity and mouthfeel. After time in oak barriques our Chardonnay was carefully filtered and bottled. With careful cellaring this wine will continue to develop over 5 to 8 years.
