The Lost Farm Chardonnay 2021 is a complex and elegant Chardonnay that shows lemon zest, white peach, nectarine, cashew nut and graceful oak with a creaminess and texture all linked together with cleansing acidity. This is classically cool climate and bursting with flavour.
This particular vintage has received mass critical claim. It was the recipient of the Trophy for the best Tasmanian Chardonnay at last year’s Royal Melbourne and a Trophy and Gold Medal at the Rutherglen Wine Show.
Cool-climate chardonnay sourced from the Tamar Valley. Pale straw in the glass with a striking nose of juicy white peach, citrus and nectarine fruits underscored by dreamy, cashew-like French oak, white flowers, oatmeal, almond paste and stone. Tight, scintillating acidity provides a vital pulse and the wine finishes with impressive clarity and detail. Fans out beautifully with a textural, light-phenolic tweak and a lovely white peach, citrus and roasted nut flourish.
Very light yellow hue; smoky oak, lees and low-level sulfide aromas combine to create a complex impression, the palate restrained and delicate yet superbly intense and multi-layered. Deep-set lemon/citrus and almost kiwi-fruit flavours. A most impressive young chardonnay, roasted hazelnuts powering the palate, which is refined and long.
