Key Information

Other Information

  • ABV13.5%
  • Grape TypeChardonnay
  • Vintage1999

Fresh, complex, melon fruit with subtle cream, spice and nut overtones. Hints of oak.

A fine flavoured wine of excellent depth of flavour. Ripe and robust but still restrained when compared with most Australian Chardonnays. One of Weaver's more opulent wines.

A wine of freshness and delicacy. Dry, crisp and long flavour. Flavourful but delicate foods are ideal partners for this wine. Happily accompanies a wide range of foods, in particular seafood, such as prawns, barramundi or lobster.

The '99 vintage was warm but rain in the latter part of March slowed ripening. They were fortunate to have a spell of sunny weather from the 28th of March until the 30th when they picked the Chardonnay. The ripe flavour was excellent and achieved at slightly lower sugar levels than the previous 2 years.

Oak maturation; 12 months in French oak barriques. All from forests in the centre of France and Vosges. Half new oak and half second use.
