Chardonnay & Sauvignon Blanc

STOCK CLEARANCE £6.95inc per bottle, Australia Australia

A fresh, fruit driven wine displaying aromas of citrus and tropical fruits and some herbaceous notes.  Bright Chardonnay flavours of melon and fig combine with the grassy and grapefruit flavours from the Sauvignon Blanc.  The wine is crisp and refreshing with a long clean finish. 
The wine was crafted from 75% Chardonnay grapes and 25% Sauvignon Blanc grapes, sourced primarily from our vineyards in the Goulburn Valley region in Central Victoria.  The grapes were picked and crushed during the cool of night to retain their fresh varietal flavours - which is especially important when using aromatic varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc.
The summer of 2012 / 2013 was hot and dry - the hot weather ripening grapes out of the 2013 vintage early and the dry spell allowing the sugars to develop fully.  Balancing sugar and acid was tricky this year, however the vintage ended with a bang with great flavour ripeness being achieved at the last minute.  2013 will go down as a cracking year, with excellent overall quality and magnificent, vibrant colour in the reds.
An easy drinking, refreshing wine style which is a great match with poultry such as garlic and lemon roasted chicken breast or oven roasted spatchcock.

An Aussie trucker walks into an outback cafe' with a full-grown emu behind him. 
The waitress asks them for their orders.
The trucker says, 'A hamburger, chips and a coke,' and turns to the emu, 'What's yours?' 
'Sounds great, I'll have the same,' says the emu
A short time later the waitress returns with the order 'That will be $9.40 please,' and he reaches into his pocket and pulls out the exact change and pays.
The next day, the man and the emu come again and he says, 'A hamburger, chips and a coke.' 
The emu says, ' Sounds great, I'll have the same.'
Again the trucker reaches into his pocket and pays with exact change.
This becomes routine until the two enter again. 'The usual?' asks the waitress.
'No, it's Friday night, so I'll have a steak, baked potato and a salad,' says the man..
'Same for me,' says the emu. 
Shortly the waitress brings the order and says, 'That will be $32.62'
Once again the man pulls the exact change out of his pocket and places it on the table.
The waitress cannot hold back her curiosity any longer. 'Excuse me mate, how do you manage to always pull the exact change from your pocket every time?' 
'Well, love' says the trucker, 'a few years ago; I was cleaning out the back shed, and found an old lamp. When I cleaned it, a Genie appeared and offered me two wishes. 
My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I would just put my hand in my pocket and the right amount of money would always be there.'
'That's brilliant!' says the waitress. 'Most people would ask for a million dollars or something, but you'll always be as rich as you want, for as long as you live!' 
'That's right. Whether it's a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce, the exact money is always there.' says the man. 
Still curious the waitress asks, 'What's with the bloody emu?'   
The trucker pauses, sighs, and answers, 'My second wish was for a tall bird with a big arse and long legs, who agrees with everything I say!
