Devil's Corner Chardonnay 2021
The hallmark of this Chardonnay is its purity of fruit and pristine acidity. The nose opens up with zesty melon aromas alongside ripe nectarine. The palate is fresh and youthful with zingy citrus flavors of lemon and grapefruit. There’s some subtle
creaminess on the palate from the neutral oak, with a lovely zesty finish.

This white is fresh and light, but not shy on intensity, with notes of toasted sesame seed, fresh grated ginger and salted melon adding complexity to the core of citrus and ripe stone fruit flavors. Vibrant, mouthwatering acidity weaves in and out, highlighting all the details. Drink now.
Directly south of the city of Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula wine region, the cool-climate island of Tasmania has earned an honorable reputation as the country’s finest producer of Sparkling Wine. Naturally the region also excels in top quality still wines from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling, all distinguished because of a high natural acidity. Most of the Tasmania vineyards cluster around the eastern side of the island from north to south.
One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
