Sku: 1790854

Lead Time 5 day lead-time required Why?

Founded in 2007 and located in Western Australia, Vinaceous is the brainchild of winemaker Michael Kerrigan and marketer Nick Stacy. Michael has 17+ years of winemaking experience and his contacts with farmers ensure access to superior fruit. The reds are sourced from renowned vineyards in South Australia including McLaren Vale and the Barossa Valley based on recommendations from South Australia's most talented producers and winemakers. The Verdelho is sourced from a single vineyard in Pemberton, a cool-climate West Australian region, while the Chardonnay is sourced from Margaret River. Vinaceous' labels are inspired by circus and sideshow posters from the 1930s and 1940s.

Tasting notes
Bright, clean and aromatic with rich fruit, subtle oakand crisp, clean finish.

 Wine Advocate 88 points (Aug 2011)
20% of the 2011 Shakre Chardonnay was fermented in new French oak while the remaining proportion was vinified in stainless steel. Still very youthful on the nose, it offers pronounced notes of ripe peaches and melon over warm apple slices and a touch of cedar. Medium bodied and crisp in the mouth, there’s just enough mid-palate fruit and a suggestion of texture, finishing long and a little oaky. The oak should marry with a further 6-12 months in bottle, drinking best 2012-2015.
 Wine Enthusiast 87 points (Sep 2013)
Only about 20% of this Chardonnay sees oak, so what the wine delivers is mainly fresh, primary fruit. Pineapple and passion fruit flavors dominate, finishing crisp and refreshing. Drink now.

Technical notes
Fruit from dry farmed, old vines Gin Gin (or Mendoza) clone of Chardonnay was fermented in stainless steel (80%) to preserve delicacy and brightness and French oak (20%) for added texture and mouthfeel.
