About the wine

Top Shelf from Tassie, pristinely sourced
  • Affectionally known as the King of White wines, this is a Chardonnay that sings out flavour and complexity reflecting the Tasmanian eccentricity with which it was nurtured. With hundreds of reviews and huge ratings each vintage, this truly is the return of a Top Shelf Naked champion!
  • Aromas of white peach, dried citrus and hints of elderflower will leap out of your glass, while the palate treats you to succulent Nashi pear. This develops into well rounded stone fruit layers...think white peach with a finish of subtle ruby red grapefruit.
  • Cynthea and David pour their decades of incredible winemaking experience into each wine and deliver an incredible level of Tamar Valley quality each vintage. With Angel funding behind them, you can now access some of the world's most premium and pristinely sourced Chardonnay at incredibly accessible prices for you!

Best before
The 2017 Chardonnay has a lot more acid than the 2016, so it will age longer in the bottle. I would definitely age this wine for at least 6 months from purchase to up to 5 years....... cooler years in Tassie tend to be great for ageing and this was one of them!

Serving advice
Chardonnay is best when it is served at just under room temperature and not straight out of the fridge if you want to taste all the delicious nuances. So opening a little earlier before you eat is perfect allowing it to warm just a little rather than super chilled out of the fridge. Many characters are masked by chilling, so if you are wanting to taste the complexities, creaminess and texture these are tasted best when just cool!

Food match
This years Chardonnay has a lovely minerality to it so I'm going to suggest a dozen or more Oysters when they are in season! I am also keen to try with my preserved meyer lemons rubbed into free range chicken then baked with oregano! Actually the other day we had homemade gnocchi with fresh sugo tomato sauce and parmesan, Delicious!

Meet the winemaker - Cynthea & David Feldheim

  • Cynthea has been making wine for 23 years. She started at a young age... 5 to be exact when her parents moved from San Francisco to Tassie and purchased a plot of land which they planted in 1980. It was a natural evolution to work with the vines and Cynthea eventually ended up studying winemaking and wine marketing.
  • Her favourite varietals are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Cynthea absolutely loves using her sense of smell and taste as her job. It has opened her world so much more. AND, it is the best passport to travel on!
  • The Angels investment allows Cynthea and her husband David more time to spend with the growers, and getting the best grapes they can. Great grapes = great wine!
