Cambridge Crossing Chardonnay 2018
The river Cam was an important medieval trade route that brought Mediterranean wine to the upper classes of Cambridge, England. In this tradition, Cambridge Crossing brings today’s finest “new world” Australian wines safely across the seas for your enjoyment.
Colour: Pale straw green.
Nose: Yellow peach and ripe nectarines with accents of wild honey and hints of lemon myrtle. These are supported by freshly cut hay and cinnamon spice complexities from wild fermentation.
Palate: Medium bodied, layers of flavour build across the palate that reflect not only the fruit but the use of wild fermentation and ageing on yeast lees. On the palate the slightest hint of oak comes through as a hint of cinnamon and spice, highlighting the complexity derived from barrel matured reserve wine. Balanced acidity gives the wine thrust through to the refreshing finish.
