The Schubert Chardonnay comes from a single vineyard that produces fruit with greater weight and intensity than the ‘standard’ Bloodwood Chardonnay. The fruit is powerful enough to soak up 100% new French oak. Quite rich with a core of white peach and apple surrounded by toast, nougat and spice. Zero malolactic results in a fresh line of acid keeping things lively and clean despite the power on offer. Delicious fuller-bodied Chardonnay. A great release. – FWC.
