Groth Hillview Estate Vineyards Chardon 2018
The aromas of this classic Chardonnay are dominated by honeysuckle with fruit notes of lemon zest, lime leaf, and ripe white peach. There is an underpinning of oak giving a bit of lift and a hint of meringue, but it is far from overbearing. The palate entry is bright and clean, moving quickly from green apple into complex citrus and a touch of tropical fruit. Good mass and density are countered with crisp linear acidity which is in turn balanced by a subtle oak sweetness. The long finish rounds it all off with fresh lime and juicy peach. Enjoy this Chardonnay with grilled fish, roasted chicken, or just a summer evening among friends.
This wine offers creamy elements of melon and stone fruit. It has a richness of pronounced oak that works well with the soft texture and overriding opulence.
Attractive fresh pears and apples follow to a fresh palate with bright, pear-pastry and lemon flavors on offer.
