Schild Estate Unwooded Chardonnay 2019
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley|
The aroma is characterized by fresh lemon citrus notes alongside a hint of classic Chardonnay nutty and creamy aromas and those reminiscent of mineral bath salts. In the mouth a plump front palate shows the same lemon citrus accompanied by flavours of white peach before a fresh acid line then works in tandem with a soft edge to ensure the wine remains, delicate, balanced, but targeted in its presence through the palate.
This unwooded Chardonnay is a refreshing contrast to many of this producer's ripe, powerful reds. It opens with a bright perfume of peach, melon and ginger, with a mineral, saline note in the background. The palate has textural appeal. It's creamy in feel yet lifted by pure, mouthwatering acidity and clean, fresh fruit flavors.
