I was lucky enough to be sent a sample to try out, and let’s just say, this Chardonnay didn’t last long unopened.

Firstly, I know we shouldn’t judge a wine by its label, but isn’t this one a looker! And the good news is the delectable juice inside doesn’t disappoint either.
This Arcadia Bohemia 2017 Chardonnay is part of Vinomofo’s ‘Collaboration Series’ where they work hand-in-hand with winemakers to craft awesome wines. This wine is made from grapes from the Mornington Peninsula (Red Hill) and crafted by winemaker, Barney Flanders of Garagiste.
This Chardonnay was:
- Gently whole bunch pressed
- Fermented with wild yeast in mostly big old oak barrels
- Kept on fine lees for 8 months
And the end product? Well here are Mr Spittoon and my notes on it:
It’s the colour of lemons in the glass with a slight hint of lime. On the nose it’s very fresh and citrus driven – think stone fruit, lemongrass, grapefruit and floral perfume. While in the mouth it’s rounded with flavours of apricot, nectarine, citrus and a lick of tropical-ness. It ends with a smooth yet refreshing acidic finish.
This wine was sent to me direct from Vinomofo as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
