This top-tier chardonnay is precise, intense and rippling with concentration and nerve. Fresh-cut new French Oak offers aromas of grilled hazelnuts, vanillin and spice with nougat and ripe pears, grapefruit citrus and florals – very complex. The palate has fine-etched acidity and savoury nutty barrel-fermentation flavours. A piercing and linear wine with restrained grapefruit flavour, finishing crisp and mouth-wateringly fresh.
The Frewer family established Jones Road vineyard in 1997 at Somerville on the Mornington Peninsula overlooking Westernport Bay. The maritime climate of this region produces some of Australia’s best cool climate wines due to the late ripening, fertile soil and careful vineyard management. Winemaking at Jones Road starts in the vineyard; careful management of yields and hand-picking ensure that the grapes reach the winery in premium condition.
