Description

Coombe Farm Chardonnay is one of our ‘flagship’ wines and one for which we are most renowned. Coombe Farm Chardonnay is identifiable by its grapefruit & stone-fruit flavour intensity, enduring acidity and oak finesse.

Winemaking Notes

The 2014 Coombe Farm Chardonnay is a 70/30 blend of the Penfolds 58 and Mendoza clones. Three batches (two P58 & one Mendoza) were harvested and handled separately until just prior to bottling. Each batch was fermented in French oak barriques using different yeasts. Approximately 10% of the barrels completed malolactic fermentation giving it a gorgous golden creaminess.

Growing Conditions

2014 was a nice, dry & moderately warm vintage with steady and typical ripening patterns. It will be remembered for the very low yields (small crops) in red varieties and below average in whites.

Food Pairing

Grilled Barramundi with fresh chillis and lime.
