The Chain of Ponds Corkscrew Road Chardonnay 2018 has an elegant nose displaying lifted primary fruits of peach, grapefruit, rock melon, nectarine and fig with secondary characters of subtle spicy oak and baked brioche. On the palate this Chardonnay wine displays balanced linear acidity and exceptional fruit length with balanced oak and a subtle creaminess on the finish.
This Chardonnay is best with Scallops with sweetcorn purée and pancetta crumb. For a more peculiar pairing try our suggestion of Mac & Cheese, peanut butter toast, Anzac biscuits, buttered popcorn or Hot Cross Buns.
93pts, “Hand-picked and sorted, part wild-fermented in French oak, part on full juice solids, part with eight cultured yeast strains, 20% mlf, 10 months in oak. Skilled winemaking at work, with attractive white peach/melon fruit.” ~ 2021 Halliday Wine Companion
