2017 Indigo Vineyard Chardonnay

2017 Indigo Vineyard Chardonnay

Beechworth, VIC

Careful winemaking and a very hands-off approach has resulted in a beautiful green-tinted yellow colour, with pear and grapefruit aromas, and some Beechworth ‘bran meal’ notes. Low ‘struck match’ characters and a perfect line of acidity running through the palate gives this wine a fine texture. A perfect example of Australian Chardonnay and a beautiful follow up to the multi-award winning 2016 vintage.

Wine Profile
Whole bunch pressing, wild ferment in new French oak have come together in spectacular fashion. The wine was fermented in 30% new French oak and the balance older, from a variety of cooperages.
Winemaker Comments
Our Beechworth neighbour Rick Kinzbrunner from Giaconda has had immense success with his Beechworth Chardonnay, highlighting the great quality of this region. The Indigo property has different soils, aspect, clones and vine age, but it is another great example of what this region can do for Chardonnay. We have minimum winemaker input to let the regional characteristics shine through. In Beechworth, two things really stand out; the consistent high quality of the grapes as the vines approach 20years, and the stability of the weather. Very good winter rain in 2016 and a fine dry summer. Picking got underway 2 weeks later than 2016.
Food Pairing
Seafood and light meats.
Drinking well now but will improve with further bottle age.
