2014 Clairault Estate Chardonnay awarded GOLD at the 2016 Perth Royal Wine Show.
The Perth Royal Wine Show was established in 1843 and is credited with putting WA on the map as a producer of quality wines. The competition is held annually and receives thousands of entries.
The 2014 Clairault Estate Chardonnay utilises fruit from our cooler Bridgeland vineyard. This is a 'new style' Margaret River Chardonnay, and has just been released in the Clairault Streicker Cellar Door.
Aromas of stonefruit, squeezed lemon, vanilla pod and eastern spice are a luxurious starting point. The clean, precise palate has sophisticated lines of oyster shell, lime juice and orange blossom. The finish is long and creamy, with fine acidity. This wine is lovely now, for its freshness, but will reward with careful cellaring for another 8 - 10 years.
