2017 Ballarat Chardonnay

The super elegant wine displays fruit aromas and flavours of white peach, nectarine and grapefruit zest. A creamy, nutty character is matched to a mouth-watering thread of natural acidity throughout the long finish. - Sam Vogel, Winemaker

"With its luminous golden hue, this Chardonnay greets the nose with an alluring bouquet of ripe peach, toasted almonds, and a whisper of vanilla. On the palate, it delivers a harmonious blend of creamy textures and vibrant acidity, showcasing layers of citrus zest, melon, and a subtle minerality that leads to a long, satisfying finish. This wine is a superb testament to the craftsmanship at Provenance, offering both sophistication and freshness." - 95 Points, thewinepanel.com.au

"This complexity is on show from the outset aromatically, with lemon preserves, chalk, cheesecloth, lemon wax, and citrus salt leaping out of the glass, followed by button mushroom and a touch of honeysuckle. The palate holds a mouth-filling, chalky texture and brilliant intensity with sweet pops of nettle honey, cheese rind, button mushroom, preserved lemon and honeysuckle notes mirroring the nose. Vibrancy abounds through the palate, with the nettle notes permeating the mouth-perfume and the chalk, cheesecloth and subtle honey notes pulling to gentle length thanks to an impressive acid line. This is a delicious and complex example of aged Victorian chardonnay." - 95 Points, Tom Kline, winepilot.com
