Orlando Lyndale Chardonnay

From: $45.99

Lyndale™ Adelaide Hills Chardonnay is a stunning, contemporary cool-climate Australian Chardonnay from the Adelaide Hills.

Vibrant pale green straw

Regional fruit characters of white peach and citrus with complex nuances of cashew, macadamia nut and flint

Purity of fruit underlies this wine with an abundance of stone fruit and lemon pith, however it shows plenty of restraint and precision with its tight mineral acid backbone. A multi layered palate with a seamless integration of oak and a harmonious texture that is an outstanding example of modern cool climate Chardonnay

Ideal Drinking Window

Blocks from Woodside provided the backbone of this outstanding vintage which contributed generosity and length to the palate. Fruit from selected Piccadilly parcels with their purity added a fine linear acid profile.
Vintage Conditions

A dry winter led to a late but even bud burst for the 2018 season. Canopies were large, with full capacity to ripen crop loads. January, February and April were warm, fortunately a cooler March enabled ideal night temperatures for flavour development and acid retention.

After whole bunch pressing, juice was filled to new French oak puncheons for 8 months to respect the delicate fruit profile. Limited malolactic fermentation and extended batonnage provided texture and mouthfeel.
