The Black Label Chardonnay is, like many of Aramis' fine whites, a brilliant example of cool-climate elegance done well. Partial barrel fermentation offers a beautiful textural mouthfeel to a Chardonnay brimming with bright nectarine and a crisp line of citrus-like acidity. Toasted brioche and a delicate perfume add further layers to this stylish wine with unrivalled depth and complexity. Crafted by Peter Leske, recently named ASVO Winemaker of the Year.
"Sourced from vineyard sites in Lenswood and another extremely steep plot in Ashton, this is a wine of faint stone fruited subtlety. Mid-weighted, with a thread of filigreed acidity, a waft of curd and a gentle pucker of oak to accent the apricot and peach flavours, the wine meanders around the mouth, growing in stature with air... 91pts" (Ned Goodwin - Halliday Wine Companion).
