2020 Clearview Reserve Chardonnay
Presents with a youthful pale gold hue and complex aroma of integrated seasoned oak ripe stone fruit, brioche and mealy characters complement dried summer herbs and oak complexity on the palate. This wine has a superb acid line and balance that makes it accessible now but promises much for those with the patience to cellar.
Awards and Accolades
2020 was an exceptional growing season that produced a naturally balanced crop of clean Chardonnay from a long & dry summer. Fruit predominantly from our oldest vines were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed, some directly to barrel and some cold settled. Barrel fermentation in 46% new oak was followed by a regime of stirring and topping until April 2021 when racking and assemblage commenced. Sterile filtration preceded 1st July bottling.

Slow-roasted Pork BellyA roast crisp pork belly is entertaining at its best, without the fuss. Roast pork belly works best with a wine that has a high level of acidity plus a touch of sweetness – a young Pinot Noir or Dry Riesling would be perfect.
