Below & Above Chardonnay 2017

Bright with a golden, yellow hue, this medium bodied wine has a delightful fragrance of butterscotch and stone fruit with an edge of minerality. Elegant and delicate, rich and complex fruit flavours and well integrated toasty oak. Balanced and intense through the palate the precise acid takes it to a very long dry savoury finish. Delicious, cool and refined.

WINEMAKING NOTES

Located in the sub-region of Eastbrook, Thella Estate was identified early by Western Australian viticulture pioneers as one of the best patches of dirt in the state for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir due to a complex and specific interaction of environmental conditions including: relatively cool climate; deep red, loamy, gravel soil; high rainfall and altitude (250 metres above sea level). Thella Estate vines have supplied some of the state’s finest labels since the 1990s and its ‘Hill Block’ Chardonnay has a reputation for producing exceptional quality fruit. The estate has produced wine as Below & Above since 2013, under the direction of renowned Western Australian contract winemaker, Bruce Dukes.

FOOD PAIRING

Delicous with seafood like crabs,prawns and oysters! Also great with pasta and risottos. Why not try with some sushi!

TASTING NOTES

Bright with a golden, yellow hue, this wine has a subtle, fresh and very clean aroma, punctuated by waves of juicy citrus. Elegant and mouth-filling, this wine is spicy yet smooth; intense and flinty; with cool, integrated acidity. The finely woven palate has a precise mineral core, long, lingering finish and focus. Delicious, cool and refined.
