Nugan Estate KV Frascas Lane Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Nugan Estate King Valley Frascas Lane Chardonnay 2016

Tasting Notes



VEGAN FRIENDLY!

Sept 2018 - The Nugan Frasca’s Lane Chardonnay is sourced from a 100 hectare vineyard in the higher elevation, cooler climate King Valley of Victoria, located several hours north of Melbourne. The 2016 Frasca’s Lane Chardonnay has a brilliant pale straw color and youthful hue, offering up a light oak spice to stone fruit/peach and white orchard fruit aromatically. This is a medium fuller bodied wine that flirts with richness yet still maintains a sense of refinement. Blessed with a lightly creamy texture, with some engaging mid palate flesh and broadness, this has a lovely thread of acidity giving lift and freshness to the peach and light citrus flavors, with a note of nuttiness and oak spice on the finish that adds extra nuance and interest. Showing well as we speak this should hold up nicely over the next couple of years.
