Bellarmine Chardonnay 2021
Pemberton is a part of what is one of the most exciting wine regions in Australia, the Southern coastline of Western Australia, where climactic influences rising up from Antarctica make this one of the country’s coolest, cool climate regions. It also gives the local wines a unique purity of fruit, which you see in this delicious early drinking Chardonnay. It is bursting with exotic floral and nectarine fruits with just a touch of savoury oak which provides backbone. There is then a silkiness in the mouth, a classically rounded Chardonnay texture nicely offset by tangy acidity which drives the fruit through to a lingering finish. Give it a year or two and enjoy with spicy prawns.
