Origin: Margaret River, Western Australia.
Tasting Note: Brooks Chardonnay takes its name from our Chapman Brook Vineyard, established in 1994 in the cool southern half of Margaret River, the main source of our Chardonnay. The cooler climate captures the freshness and vibrancy of the variety, and when combined with a subtle oak influence and juicy natural acidity, produces an appealing fruit-driven style with great richness and balance. The bright minerally yet rich palate is fine and focused with delicious vanilla custard creaminess and poached apple overlaying green melon and juicy cucumber freshness. The fresh finish is long, displaying toasted hazelnut and a vibrant lemon juiciness expressing the mineral core of this viscous yet flinty chardonnay. The oatmeal biscuit and cinnamon notes from the oak are well integrated and complex.
Cellaring: Drink now or up to 6 years.
Food/Dish:
Meyer lemon and asparagus risotto, fresh scallop, kingfish carpaccio or a simple cheese board.
