Tasting notes from the winery for Pogue Vineyard Chardonnay 2020
Winemakers notes: This wine is made with 100% Chardonnay grapes sourced from the Pogue vineyard, Toolamba in Central Victoria. The vineyard is 135 acres of prime viticultural land with extensive Goulburn River frontage. Our barrel ferment was completed in 3 and 4 year old hogs heads. The wine remained in barrel to complete malolactic fermentation and the lees was stirred monthly to build texture and intricacy into the wine. Organic and vegan friendly pea protein was used for fining and clarification.
Harvest notes: The Summer of 2020 will be remembered for the devastating bushfires throughout Southern Queensland, coastal NSW and Eastern Victoria. Thankfully there were no fires in Central Victoria so our vineyard in Toolamba was unaffected. The temperatures fluctuated heavily throughout the season, but picking continued producing good flavours in the whites, and terrific colours in the reds - not unusual for a dry growing season but mostly testament to our diligent team in the vineyard.
Tasting Notes: A Chardonnay with complex aromas of baked bread, soft butter and ripe fruits of pineapple and mandarin. A creamy, textural palate with generous fruit flavours of citrus and stone fruits. A flavourful, fruit driven style with superb length yet not heavily oak driven - clean and enchanting. Food Match A classic partner to chicken, pork or pasta in a creamy sauce or a fresh caesar salad.
