Tasting Note:

Unlike the Bannockburn Chardonnay, the block chardonnays are all made from the famous Mendoza clone, giving a distinct citrus edge to the wines. This has a very different profile to the Block 2 Chardonnay. North facing, so a hint warner and sunnier, this clearly has more body and texture. Perhaps more depth of flavour, too. A ripe profile of citrus fruit, notes of tangerine and mandarin adding zip to the buttery texture. A typically more Burgundian / Meursault note of melted butter and nut come through on the long and impressive finish. A fine balance of body and freshness. Aged for 17 months in used French oak barrels.
