2022 Landmark Chardonnay

Misty Cove’s Landmark Chardonnay is deeply influenced by old-world winemaking techniques. Lovingly handcrafted in small batch quantities, we crafted this wine to reflect the “Landmark”—the attributes and characteristics of the Fareham Lane vineyard from which it originated.

A cooler ripening period resulted in a wine that shows expressive aromatics, great concentration, fresh, lively acidity, and a precise structure on the palate.

Perfect pairing

This subtly oaked Chardonnay is a crowd-pleaser if you're looking for a versatile and delicious wine to pair with various dishes. Its complex flavours and aromas of ripe fruit, vanilla, and toasted oak make it a perfect match for creamy pasta dishes, pan-fried salmon, roasted chicken, or even succulent crayfish. The wine's rich texture and balanced acidity make it an ideal companion to a wide range of cheeses, from creamy brie to tangy goat cheese. Whether you're planning a special dinner party or simply want to enjoy a glass of wine with your meal, this Chardonnay is sure to impress.

Winemaking

The wine was aged for 8 months in 25% new French barrique and 75% older barrels. The buttery profile has been purposely minimised through selective malolactic fermentation to help deliver an elegantly textured Chardonnay, with beautiful balance and a long pure finish.

Produced from a blend of clones 95 and Mendoza, the aromas of white peach, melon and nectarine shine brightly to deliver a moreish wine worthy of any setting.

"It’s elegantly complex on the nose showing apricot, lemon peel, oatmeal, nougat and roasted cashew characters, leading to a gorgeously rounded palate offering refined mouthfeel and bright acidity, finishing persistent and focused. Beautifully layered with delectable flavours and textures. At its best: now to 2028."

This is brimming with ripe stone fruit, vanilla, cedar and brioche notes with excellent depth and persistency, capable of matching roast chicken, seafood risotto and hot-smoked salmon with crème fraiche. Packed with ripe stone fruit flavours, a food-friendly winner."
