$30.00 A BOTTLE
At the heart of Manjimup’s famed Seven Day Road is the home of Western Australia’s first truffière, The Truffle & Wine Co. Established in 1997, surrounded by vineyards, orchards and majestic rolling hills our estate produces rare and delicious black winter truffles (Tuber melanosporum) and award-winning cool climate wines. Our winemaking is based at Truffle Hill, a unique vinyard where the vines grow beside the Hazel and Oak trees of the trufferie. Pungent French black truffles are produced from the roots of these trees, where in the winters, our dogs are our greatest hunters. Our wine labels are an ode to our truffle hunting dogs.
Perfect with grilled marron or scallops, pasta and risotto. Ideal to enjoy with your favourite cheese platter!
A light to mid straw in colour, with lemon hues and a brilliant clarity, this Chardonnay has very intense, vibrant perfumed aromas of stone fruit, honeydew melon and cashew nut with nougat nuances and fresh cedar oak hints. An elegant palate, with fresh, vibrant flavours of stonefruit and melon. The wine is well balanced with restrained, classy oak, resulting in a complex and well integrated finish. The palate is full bodied, but shows a focused structure. The flavours show depth, strength and persistence with fresh fruit characters lingering. Potential aging of up to 5 years. 13.2% Alcohol.
