2021 Pooley Chardonnay
Region: Coal River Valley, Tasmania
Winemaker: Anna Pooley
Established Date: 1985
Named after the co-founder Margaret Pooley, this elegant Chardonnay is matured in a mixture of barriques and puncheons for 7 months on lees. No new oak but predominantly 1 and 2nd year fills. Sun-kissed summer fruits on the nose with white peach, yellow nectarine, and nashi pear followed by a contrasting palate of winter citrus, golden apple and grapefruit pith on the palate. Plenty of generosity and depth of character with a lean acid profile and seamlessly integrated oak.
Australia’s best white grape is in a period of renewed love thanks to our cool climate regions and a winemakers restrained touch to let the ripe, cool chardonnay to shine. Peaches, and nectarines carry the frame of vanilla and brioche in perfect balance.
