2023 Apricus Hill Chardonnay

12 bottles

In stock.

This Chardonnay has been made with only the “free run” juice – the first run, finest quality juice without the bitterness and phenolics associated with the grape skin. The juice was fermented in new and second use French oak 500 litre puncheons with some grape solids giving the wine a complex savoury note. It matured in oak for 9 months.

Color: Color is a bright clear steely white with youthful green hues.

Palate: Nectarine and mandarin are complemented by a textured savoury mid palate with hints of melon and spicy vanillin oak leading to a long crisp grapefruit finish.

Nose: A vibrant lifted nose of citrus and stone fruits with savoury cashew notes and hints of gunflint and toasty French oak.

This wine will improve with up to 10 years careful cellaring.

94 pts - Jeni Port (Wine Pilot)

Top-shelf chardonnay from the West. Maybe it’s the vintage or the winemaking, but the ’23 offers a finer specimen of a Chardonnay than the previous release I tasted. Note to winemaker: keep it going! There’s a lemon theme happening here from the lemon bright hues through to the summery scents of lemon, grapefruit zest, white peach and nectarine. A seamless entry of fruit on the palate, full of character with a distinctive thread of nougat and almond and grilled nuts. Crisp, assertive, and featuring an undercurrent of light texture, it finishes with good length and balance. Can take some further time in bottle, too.
