Cape Banks Chardonnay 2015 – Flash sale special!! – normally $25 per bottle
$12.50 inc GST
The grapes for this cool-climate Chardonnay are grown in Mount Gambier, the coolest mean maximum temperature average of any wine region in mainland Australia. 50% of the wine was matured in new French oak Hogshead barrels for 4 months, which brough on a malo-latic ferment (2nd ferment) changing the malo acids into lactic acid the same as in milk and butter giving it a creamy mouth feel. The remaining 50% of the wine was fermented with select year. This single ferment keeps the crisp lime, pink lady apple and mineral notes. This is ‘left on lees’ (the dead yeast after ferment) and is stirred to increase flavours and complexity.

Bought as a special, but after drinking more than happy to pay full price. Excellent colour and flavour. Refreshing. As a (normal) red drinker, this is a great variant on a warmish day.
Smooth and easy drinking
Very pleasant wine but would like a little more Oak.
This chardonnay is a five star wine at $25.00 per bottle.
At $12.50 per bottle you'd be nuts not to buy a case.
