Sinapius Home Vineyard Chardonnay

Sinapius stood out in a line of 2012 Tasmanian chardonnays because it didn’t display the intense fruit or overt oak of many of the wines around it. Instead, an understated elegance that makes it quite sophisticated. Lemon and white peach, even lime, are the themes here, with a subtle lemon blossom lift. Supportive cashew nut French oak sits calmly behind the fruit. Acidity is lively and supportive, but not tense or hard, and it finishes long and even. Just 1180 bottles were produced from this dry grown 1994 planted vineyard. Best price direct.
