The winery has more recently extended the vineyard boundaries to source fruit from a much broader area of the region, which has added further complexities and subtleties to the wines themselves. Chain of Ponds produces a wide range of products and varieties which are perfectly suited to this cool climate region. The white varietals include Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Semillon and Chardonnay. The reds include popular Australian varieties: Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as emerging and exciting varieties for the region: Pinot Noir, Sangiovese, Barbera and Nebbiolo.
WINERY: The grapes were delivered to the winery at dawn and destemmed with all parcels fermented separately, the early parcel fermented with a traditional Sauvignon Blanc yeast and the remaining parcels with hybrid yeast to release and enhance varietal character. The wine was stored on yeast lees for 2 months to build mouth feel and texture then blended with only the best individual parcels selected.
COLOUR: Very pale green straw, green hue with brilliant clarity.
BOUQUET: Intensely aromatic gooseberry, lychee and paw paw with lifted hints of melon, all integrated with subtle passionfruit, pineapple and guava with nuances of citrus and cucumber.
PALATE: Lively and vibrant with intense fruit driven palate, citrus, gooseberry and tropical notes are supported by subtle grassiness. Balanced acidity with a soft voluptuous mouthfeel and fruit sweetness. Exceptional length and intensity.
