Winery/Brand: Spring Seed Wine Co


Restrained tropical fruits, citrus and orange blossom, as well as a hint of white stone fruit (nectarine) characterise this Chardonnay on the nose. The palate similarly shows restrained tropical fruit and exhibits balance and a satisfying evenness with a clean, fresh, citrus finish.



The Story

"Our wines are based on organic viticulture combined with traditional vinification and natural minimal processing. All this is intended to ensure the purity, integrity, texture and flavour of the vineyard.

Spring Seed Chardonnay is picked six times over a ten day period in order to capture different flavour profiles. Each batch is handled and fermented separately to add complexity to the finished wine. The wine did not go through malolactic fermentation and is not aged in oak in order to retain crisp, natural acidity."

‘full of the ripe, sunshine-kissed melon and nectarine chardonnay fruit flavours … finishes nice and dry, with a lemony, chalky, savoury character’Max Allen ‘Sustainable Sips’ ‘G’ Magazine May/ June 2009 www.gmagazine.com.au

'Two stars (very good, distinctive). Named for a brightly colored, late-afternoon-blooming flower, Spring Seed’s certified organic Chardonnay is equally bright. Notes of apricot, tangerine and lime had a spicy, lingering finish.' 2010 Food and Wine's Wine Guide
