Osawa Prestige Collection Chardonnay 2014
This wine displays delicate and complex aromas of white stone fruit, citrus blossoms, and buttered toast. Understated, delicate savory oak influences including hazelnut combine with generous rich fruit and bright acidity on the palate, forming a refined blend of power, style, and length.
“This isn’t a ‘come hither’ wine, this an ‘I’m here’ wine. It ticks all the boxes, all the things that people love about Chardonnay are here…nuttiness, richness, oak, this is the perfect ‘I’ve had a long week, it’s Friday, all I want to do is have a glass of Chardonnay.” – Cameron Douglas, MS
The Prestige Collection wines are produced in a form that allows us to showcase the inherent character of our vineyard. Low crops are a key ingredient in developing fruit with intensity and character. These vines have been controlled to produce no more than 1.5kg per vine. We want wines that exhibit floral like citrus flowers combined with the zest of grapefruit on the nose. A palate that is texturally rich and plush, yet with an attractive tension. Due to what’s going on under the ground, we can deliver a refreshing mineral and acid spine on which the more complex where flavors of nougat integrate with a lingering toastiness.
