Scorpo Estate Chardonnay 2019

SKU
SCCH201910 UCAU
Pale straw with green tints, this Chardonnay is appealing from the outset. A nose of nectarine pip, citrus curd, spice and earth lead into lees and struck match. To begin with the palate is tight and focused with citrus and fennel spice dominating. This gives way to nougat, stone fruit hints with leesy complexity and the acidity of crunchy green apple. Although drinking wonderfully now this will reward those with the patience to cellar or for that matter to decant! The fruit is grown on the Merricks North vineyard. The I10v1 clone chardonnay was picked by hand and 100% whole bunch-pressed. No malolactic conversion. It is wild yeast fermented in old oak barrels and 5% new oak. No bâtonnage. Suitable for vegans

Critic Scores & reviews

  • James Halliday's Wine Companion

    "The fresh, vibrant palate supports my suspicion that Mornington Peninsula chardonnay would be better without MLF in most instances. Grapefruit provides the javelin of the fruit expression, nothing more."
  • Gary Walsh

    "Struck match, pink grapefruit, pear skin, a wee bit of caramel butter, fennel and spice. It’s tight, tangy, all the citrus fruits, juicy and tangy, fresh and chalky, some pithy bitterness, and a long firm finish offering plenty of zing and zest. Excellent. A lot of energy and coiled power here."

Locations

Australia

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

Victoria

The wine region of Victoria has the highest number of grapevines than any other state in Australia. It is home to over 600 wineries and well-known regions such as Yarra Valley, Heathcote, and Rutherglen. Victoria is situated in the southeastern corner of Australia where due to the location, the climate has a cool maritime influence and is known for its outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, along with producing Australia’s most famed dessert Muscat and Topaque wines.

There are a number of different terroir levels throughout the wine region of Victoria which leads to the production of different ranges of wines. In the southern region of Victoria, the vines are regulated by the cool winds of the Bass Strait. Central Victoria consists of mostly flat terrain that tends to be drier and warmer than the rest of Victoria, which results in more fruit concentrated wines. It may be surprising to note that Victoria is the third most productive wine region in Australia, seeing as it does not have as many areas suitable for viticulture, which has resulted in the cellar door culture of Victoria being concentrated with smaller, but more personal boutique wineries.

Mornington Peninsula

The quality of Mornington Peninsula wines has skyrocketed in the past few years, and no grape variety has done so more than Pinot Noir wrote Huon Hooke back in 2012 in the Sydney Morning Herald. Rightly too, for the wines are superb and have been compared to the magnificent Vosnee Romanee.

The cool climate region to the South of Melbourne experiences a maritime climate ideally suited to the cultivation of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Shiraz (Syrah) and Pinot Gris. The maritime climate is greatly influenced by Bass Straight and Port Philip Bay high winds. The winds limit frost and humidity which in turn limits mould and mildews which can plague Pinot vines grown elsewhere.
