After eight years on lees, our limited edition Chandon Winemaker’s Selection Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2008 was disgorged at the ideal moment, balanced between youthful vibrancy and aged complexity.  

Wine Profile
TASTING NOTES
Grapes were sourced from a range of the finest cool climate viticultural sites in the southern wine regions of Australia, including the Yarra Valley, Tasmania, Whitlands Plateau and Macedon. At a range of altitudes from 250m to 820m elevation respectively, the location of these vineyards brings cool nights, allowing the slow development of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir flavours while retaining terrific natural acidity.
VINEYARD
A cool start to the season with some good winter rainfalls provided much needed soil moisture for the growing season. Timely rain in early summer helped further at the onset of grape ripening. Good yields of high quality fruit presented during the cool start of February and into March, well before an unseasonal late hot spell.
WINE MAKING
Grapes were picked at the onset of fruit ripeness during early February through to early March at 10.0° - 11.6° baumé. The grapes were picked in the cooler parts of the day to preserve quality and ensure minimal colour was extracted during the cuvée pressing. The grapes from each site were pressed and fermented separately to preserve their unique characteristics. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir cuvées from the Yarra Valley, Tasmania and Whitlands Plateau were sourced for this special long ageing wine. Chandon Winemaker’s Selection Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2008 spent over eight years ageing on yeast.
Food Pairing Notes
Western Australian marron tails with lime; Pork rillettes with toast; Xiao long bao dumplings
Production
Straw colour with very fine bubbles and persistent mousse. Aromas of hazelnut, white peach and acacia flower overlay toast and fresh baked sourdough. The palate is generous, a sense of hazelnut nougat is supported by fine texture and delicate acidity. A well-integrated and balanced wine.
