Description

Stargazer pays tribute to Abel Tasman, who as an explorer and navigator, must have spent a fair amount of time gazing towards the heavens. Tasman, a Dutchman under the employ of the United East India Company was the first European to sight Tasmania (on 24 November 1642) and then the South Island of New Zealand, nineteen days later on 13 December.

He is a natural link for me, having been born and bred a South Islander, and now having fallen in love with another island, Tasmania. The opportunity to work with pristine fruit to craft the wines that I am passionate about in an environment of extraordinary beauty is really all I have ever wanted to do as a winemaker.

Review

A densely packed, chewy, pithy and appetizing mid-weighted chardonnay. Tightly coiled scents of nutty praline, nougat and white peach. The oak, nestled into the fray seamlessly. The finish uncoils with air rather nicely, splaying long across a raft of juicy acidity. Drink or hold across the mid-term.

Food pairing
Chardonnay pairs exceptionally well with a variety of dishes, including creamy pasta, grilled seafood, roasted chicken, and dishes featuring buttery sauces, thanks to its versatile flavor profile and balanced acidity.

Tasting Profile

Nose
The nose shows plenty of white nectarine and fresh pear with some background secondary notes of gunflint and almond meal.
Palate
The palate is complex and round with mandarin juice mouth-watering acidity, the fruit and oak integrated and focussed at the same time.
