Tasting Notes

Great Escape is our benchmark, cool climate Chardonnay produced from fruit grown in elevated vineyard sites which allow for a long ripening period which helps to maintain the natural sugar and acid balance of the grape. With moderate alcohol, focussed, crisp citrus fruit and a mouthwatering finish, this is an accomplished, truly modern style of this noble variety. (Winemaker notes)

    Now here's an outstanding value for the Chardonnay lover. With only a touch of 20% new French oak, and no secondary malolactic fermentation, the Thistledown prefers to focus on the acidic citrus notes that I tend to love in a Chardonnay. Not quite a Chablis, and definitely not a California chardonnay, the Thistledown is in a league of it's own, and it shows that the winemakers from down under clearly know what they're doing, and at an outstanding value.
