Riversdale Estate Crater Chardonnay 2011 – Tasting Note

Riversdale Estate in Tasmania’s Coal River Valley, has an emphasis on sustainability and (given previous vintages) consistency. Using water saving measures, encouraging insect loving bird species around the estate, along with many other vineyard management techniques. The previous vintages of this wine both achieved trophies at wine shows.Riversdale Estate Chardonnay

If you are a fan of reved up oak then this is going to rock your socks.  Packed full of fruit – vanilla aromas, citrus zest, and ripe stone fruit leap from the glass.  The palate displays luscious stone fruit, preserved lemon/lemon curd creaminess. Intense, but well balanced wine, which lingers on the palate. Able to stand up to ‘meater’ dishes. But I’d pair it with baked snapper covered in a beurre blanc sauce. Available from Riversdale Estate and Cellarmasters.
