2017 Gartelmann 'Lisa' Reserve Chardonnay
Orange Region

2017 Gartelmann 'Lisa' Reserve Chardonnay

NAME 
Named after Jorg Gartelmann’s aunt Lisa

STYLE & WINEMAKING 
Barrel fermented in new and one year old 500 litre puncheons and 300 litre hogsheads to achieve the more subtle oak characters. Kept in oak for ten months with monthly lees stirring. Freshness and vitality was preserved by inhibiting malolactic fermentation. 
VINEYARD 
A vineyard in the Orange Region west of Orange.
TASTING NOTES 
This cold climate chardonnay is more subtle, less blowsy, quietly intense. Right now this Reserve chardonnay is elegant, subdued, exhibiting delightful citrus and flinty characters with a good dash of excellent French oak to add the vanilla and toasty bouquet we expect.  Its full aroma though is still hiding behind a respectful alcohol content of 13%, and some bracing acid.
FOOD MATCHING 
Enjoy now at room temperature with gentle flavours of poached chicken, scallops in cream or soft ripe cheeses. But leave it alone for a year or so and watch it bloom into something altogether less self-effacing. 
VINTAGE
A dry November, average December, slightly warmer January and extremely dry February with slightly higher temperatures provided ideal conditions.. 
CELLARING 
Drink from 2018 or cellar until 2025+.

Pavarotti, classic, clean, intensely dramatic with fantastically sweet high notes but a seamless range and depth of flavour underneath the smooth surface. This wine is a class act: engaging cassis fruit overture on the nose, blended blackberries and raspberries symphonise on the palate, with only the best of oak nuances, and a softly  tannic final dénouement. Sublime, and delicious.

The caramelised peaches on the nose, the citrusy nectarines on the palate, the long lime vanillin wafts on the finish, seducing the taste buds to believe it is sweet but finishing bone dry. This is one of those wines that you will remember for a long time. Such a cliche’ but it is superbly balanced and full of flavour. Delights every sense. To all who have wandered away from Chardonnay... come back, try this, you will not be continuing on that erroneous path any longer

What happens at Vintage?

Its Vintage time again and wow, it’s sure been hot! But overall, we are really pleased with the Hunter Valley Harvest so far. On January 9th we picked Chardonnay for our Sparkling white base, followed by Semillon and Verdelho the week after. Despite very different seasons they were both picked at the same time as last year and are showing better acid and are a little more delicate in flavour than 2018.  Continue »
