About This Wine
When you think of Australian red wine, you probably think of Shiraz — which is the Aussie name for Syrah.
When you think of white wine from the land Down Under, the variety that should come to mind is Chardonnay. And most of the country’s top-quality Chardonnay — including that crafted by Willunga — comes from South Eastern Australia.
Not so much a wine appellation or even a region, South Eastern Australia is a large zone that encompasses the Victoria, South Australia, New South Wales and Tasmania states. That means Willunga can source grapes from a number of different microclimates, with the goal of creating a cuvee that is dependably complex and delicious from vintage to vintage.
The 2016 Willunga Chardonnay delivers an abundance of flavor, from its alluring aroma to its fruitful flavor to its satisfying finish. It’s a wine that demonstrates how delightful Chardonnay from South Eastern Australia can be.
Relatively easy to grow in a variety of locations. Consistently produces some of the world's great white wines. Complex, full, rich and fruity with soft edges and moderate acidity. Offers rich and intense fruit flavors of apple, fig, melon, pear, peach, pineapple, along with creamy yeast spice, honey, butter and hazelnut flavors.
