Tantalus Juveniles Chardonnay
The nose is classic unmanipulated Chardonnay with lemon cream and green apple complemented by a wonderful sea breeze freshness and oyster shell quality. Hints of gunflint and white flowers also waft from the glass.
The palate is awash with lemon verbena and gala apple with a zesty lime essence drawing it all together. The finish offers an intriguing sweet/savoury balance on the back palate, drawing out with lovely length and our hallmark Tantalus acidity.
All sourced from our single vineyard estate, our young gun Chardonnay block was handpicked and vinified in small lots using entirely wild fermentation. The wine was crafted in a combination of stainless steel and neutral barrels, this ensured the purity of the fruit was maintained with just a wisp of oak present.
At only 4 years old, this young vineyard is already showing incredible potential and we are very excited to see this vineyard evolve and develop over the next 20 years.
