2023 Chain Of Ponds Millers Creek Chardonnay Adelaide Hills – Selected from two vineyard sites in the southern Adelaide Hills, primarily from a vineyard in Balhannah planted to Clone 96, managed with VSP trellising. A small portion of I10V1 is blended in from a vineyard situated in Kuitpo. Picked in the earlier fruit spectrum to provide richness as well as drive and purity.
Zesty nose displaying good citrus lift entwined with ripe peach, new season nectarine and hints of spring flowers. Supporting aromatic oak gives a subtle spice and lift to the nose.
Fresh nectarines and ripe peach are round and provide good upfront fruit with supporting citrus backbone. Supporting French oak spice works harmoniously with the fruit in giving length and intensity on the finish. Well balanced acidity with subtle textural elements combine with a subtle creaminess from lees contact to provide additional complexity and drive on the finish.
Match with pan seared chicken with creamy white wine and mushroom sauce.
