Watershed Senses Chardonnay 2016

Watershed Senses Chardonnay 2016

Margaret River, Western Australia   |    750ml   |    13%

Watershed Wines of Margaret River continues to build its reputation as a premium wine producer. The 2016 Watershed 'Senses' Chardonnay is the first Chardonnay release under the 'Senses' range, which the team at Watershed have absolutely nailed.

This single vineyard chardonnay has been produced using selected grapes from Watershed's estate vineyard, which are barrel fermented in new and seasoned French oak barriques, to deliver an intensely flavoured and complex wine. The nose displays lifted citrus and stone fruit aromas, complimented by flinty and nutty characters. The palate is creamy and textured with a lingering crisp finish. With a RRP of $30, we're excited to offer this high quality Margaret River Chardonnay at this heavily discounted price.

"96 Points. Small batch-fermented in French oak (18.5% new) on lees for 7 months with light battonage. The combination of high quality cool grown grapes and sensitive winemaking has produced this lovely chardonnay, the first release of a chardonnay in the Senses range. Delicacy teams with intensity (an oxymoron if ever there was one), grapefruit, white peach and nectarine the drivers, not the oak. Drink by: 2029 Price: $30.00 Alcohol: 13%" - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2018.

"A lighter-bodied chardonnay that sits below the Awakening. Yet this is very good. Minerally with a creamy texture showing some subtle cashew character. Vibrant and alive on the palate with the clever use of oak as a feature. 92/100 Cellar: 5 Years" - Ray Jordan, The West Australian Wine Guide 2018.
