Woop Woop Chardonnay
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Sourced from mature vineyards in the Southern Fleurieu regions, where there are consistent warm days and cool nights, which help Chardonnay excel.
Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay
Elaboration: Select chardonnay grapes were destemmed and lightly pressed. Transfered to stainless steel where the wine underwent fermentation. Racked and bottled with light filtration.
Tasting Notes: Ripe pear and notes of honeysuckle compliment this medium-bodied chardonnay. With fresh, lively acidity, this wine really shows off the extreme balance that wines from Australia can achieve. With a fresh palate and nose, this wine not only offers great value, but also offers great quality.
Woop Woop, which is Australian slang for the middle of nowhere, is a project from winemaker Ben Riggs, who is responsible for literally hundreds of excellent Australian wines made over the last couple of decades. With minimal oak treatment, the Woop Woop lineup of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Shiraz showcase their varietal representation with Aussie terroir being a focal point. All made in a light-to-medium bodied style, these wines are perfectly suited to year-round consumption.
