Pale straw with tinges of gold.
Intense, bright citrus, stone fruit and hints of curry leaf. Savoury, spicey oak flavours with underlying notes of cashew nut and oatmeal.
This wine is Margaret River Chardonnay at its best. It’s elegant and generous with rich and complex flavours all beautifully balanced with the finest French oak. White peach, grapefruit, oatmeal, with vanilla and freshly roasted cashews as it opens up. The palate displays layers of complexity, bright fruit, and lively acidity which adds length to the exquisite structure. Whilst drinking beautifully now, with careful cellaring for 10 years or more, this limited release of the Prendiville Reserve Chardonnay will certainly reward your patience. Serve cellar cool, 12 to 16°C
Originally planted in 1972, the Sandalford Estate vineyard in Wilyabrup, Margaret River, is one of the largest and oldest vineyards in this famed region. The spur pruned Chardonnay vines utilised to make this wine are from the renowned Gingin clone planted on the Estate in 1985. This clone is inherently low-yielding and produces wines of great concentration and flavour. The Wilyabrup sub-region is in the northern end of the Margaret River GI. Wilyabrup is usually some 3-4 degrees Celsius warmer on average than the southern parts of Margaret River. This translates to producing wines with flavour ripeness and generosity.
