Description

I put on Notorious B.I.G as I sat down to write up my review of the Stoney Rise Chardonnay because “Juicy” is our keyword. Ripe apricots, peaches, juicy green apples, sweet, fresh peas, honeysuckle blossoms and a buttery, freshly picked hazelnut finish.

A chance offering of fruit from a 20-year-old vineyard just north of Stoney Rise on the West Tamar, some from Relbia just south of Launceston and then a small amount from the south of the state made this wine happen. Fermented in new 2500 litre oak cask and followed by 5 months on lees, this is a Chardy to drink young. Clean and racy acidity, juicy fruit for days, chuck a chicken stuffed with lemon and herbs in the oven and crank up the Notorious B.I.G. 94 Points - Curly Haslam-Coates, The Wine Front
