Paradise IV Chardonnay 2016

Paradise IV Chardonnay 2016
  • Paradise winery started up in 1848
  • Uses traditional techniques that were the hallmark of white burgundy
  • Bottled with minimal winemaking input to show the beauty and power of the Paradise IV Vineyard


On the nose; white peach enhanced by a perfume of white flowers and as it opens with breathing, grilled nuts, lemon curd and subtle reductive notes.  A powerful wine with texture and roundness on the palate. The oak is hidden, lapped up by the fruit: an ever-changing presence of white peach, lemon and grapefruit, seasoned with a spicy orange peel character as it lingers on the palate.

Critics Comment

Huon Hooke

Medium to deep yellow, slightly forward colour. The bouquet is shy but complex: malty, yeasty, creamy and vanillan, with a trace of almond. The palate is full and round, the 7 grams/litre acidity is not felt at all, indeed it is pillow-soft. The 28% new oak has been swallowed up by the richness of the wine, as has the 28% malolactic. A superb wine which manages to combine generosity with finesse. (limestone soil; 120 cases made)
