Product Description

 

Andrew and Nicki McPherson establised a small vineyard in country Australia in 1968. With their family’s help they built one of Australia’s leading wineries and are widely recognised as  pioneers of the Australian Wine Industry.  Today, McPherson Wines are being enjoyed in twenty six countries  across the globe and are one of Australia’s largest family owned wineries.  The wines are celebrated for their  beautifully crafted, fruit driven, Australian style.

WINEMAKING / VITICULTURE
This wine was crafted from 100 percent Chardonnay grapes, sourced primarily from our vineyards in the Murray Darling region, located within South Eastern Australia. Grapes were picked and crushed during the cool of night so as to retain their fresh, varietal flavours. The juice was then divided into five parcels. Each parcel of juice underwent a different treatment, such as malolactic fermentation; fermentation and aging with French oak; or spending an extended period on yeast lees. Each treatment resulted in an individually flavoured parcel of wine and the unique character and personality of the final blend is a result of the special handling of these five separate parcels

HARVEST NOTES
The growing season in 2014 presented some challenges including frost in late 2013 and extreme heat in early 2014.  Once harvesting began in late January we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the fruit and the resulting wines.  Yields were down but quality was up this year. Whites have good varietal character, with great flavour, whilst the reds have beautiful colour and flavour intensity.   

WINE DESCRIPTION
A delightful, fruit driven wine displaying aromas of tropical fruits and peaches with just a hint of lightly toasted oak. The palate exhibits fresh, ripe Chardonnay flavours of melon and fig with a delicate, creamy texture and a crisp, clean finish. Subtle oak handling complements, rather than overpowers the wine.  

FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS
McPherson Chardonnay is a versatile wine that pairs well with a wide range of foods. Try with roast chicken and grilled fish.
