One Chain Vineyards is overseen by Peter Leske, Giles Cooke MW and Fergal Tynan MW. Their wines benefit from access to the same ultra premium quality fruit sourced for Thistledown.
This Australian white wine is made from 100% Chardonnay to create a wine which is immediately pleasing and an authentic expression of the variety and the place.
The wine is inspired by a love for the Australian national sport. Indeed, the name One Chain is the imperial measurement for 22 yards, or the length of a cricket pitch. However, you really dont need to be a connoisseur of the game to be bowled over by the restrained, elegant style of this Chardonnay.
The fruit for "The Googly" is harvested at night when it is cooler, then immediately transported to the winery to be de-juiced, ensuring minimal skin contact occurs.The wine spends a very short time in Oak barrels to add some depth and complexity.
This is a delicious, tangy white wine. It is crisp, lively and bright, with citrusy aromas. On the palate it is well balanced, with tropical fruit and melon before presenting a vibrant, textured finish.
Best served cold with grilled chicken, summer salads or shellfish.
