Pretty green, with gold hues in colour. On the nose lively tropical fruits and peach combine with a hint of French oak. In the mouth this wine is ripe, textural & rich with great acid balance, the long finish hints to the fermentation in French oak.

Tasting Notes for Angove Wild Olive Organic Chardonnay from the Winery

VINEYARD

McLaren Vale is ideally suited to organic viticulture and the Angove family’s philosophy of Organic management of their vineyards in the region has been unwavering. Sustainable viticulture and organic management of our vineyards including under-vine mulching to enrich the soil and increase carbon content, manual removal of weeds, no synthetic herbicide and fungicide use and zero artificial inputs ensures vines with better balance, fruit concentration and overall vineyard biodiversity and health. The whole system is linked – Soil, Plants, Animals, Food, People and Environment.

The 2016 Wild Olive Chardonnay grapes have been sourced from 2 long term growers in the Willunga and McLaren Flat subregions of McLaren Vale. Both vineyards have heavy Biscay clay Soils which together with cooling breezes from the nearby Gulf St Vincent give the wine its fantastic array of ripe tropical flavours.

WINEMAKING

The fruit is crushed, chilled and pressed, before racking and ferment. The Chardonnay underwent a number of fermentation techniques to highlight the quality of the fruit and encourage complexity in the wine. Following ferment the yeast lees were stirred weekly, promoting texture and mouthfeel prior to racking, filtering and bottling.
