GIACONDA
Estate Vineyard Chardonnay, Beechworth 2016

TASTING NOTES

"A glorious chardonnay in the traditional full-throttle Giaconda style. Very rich and multi-layered, it indulges the full paintbox of winemaking inputs. Smoky chicken-stock aromas, round and generous. It’s unfiltered so a slightly cloudy appearance can be expected." Huon Hook 98pt

GIACONDA

The winery was established by Rick Kinzbrunner in the early 1970's, and since then, the beguilingly ethereal Giaconda Estate Vineyard Chardonnay has emerged as one of Australia’s great wines, capturing the soul of the Beechworth landscape and the character of an exceptional vineyard site. The vineyard, located in a small valley, is minute and planted at an altitude of 400 metres. The low yielding vines are, unusually, planted on south facing slopes to avoid the full impact of the sun. The lean mineralized granitic loams over decomposed gravel and clay allow both sustained water release and naturally regulated vines. Kinzbrunner is an instinctive winemaker who rolls with the personality and variations of each vintage. His attention to detail and astonishing mastery of barrel work brings an extra dimension to all his wines, white and red.
