Wine Colour
On release the wine is a very pale straw colour with a youthful green hue.

Wine Bouquet
The wine has intense lifted aromas of melon and white peach with underlying subtle savoury notes from the French oak.

Wine Palate
The palate delivers well-balanced and evenly distributed fruit flavours of classic melon and peach along with underlying creamy notes from the lees stirring. Texturally, the wine has a retrained, tight structure overall and yet still displays a measure of subtle creaminess to the mid palate and rewards with well integrated oak. The Clare Valley parcel delivers mid palate fleshiness whilst the Adelaide Hills component contributes the restraint and elegance that are typical of this region. Overall, the wine has a great palate line with length which lingers long after the wine is consumed.

Cellaring Notes
Will cellar well under ideal conditions for the next 5 to 8 years.

  • 2015 Taylors Jaraman Chardonnay
    Jaraman Chardonnay 201588/100 Without Flaws

    Glen Frederiksen, WinelinesOnline, September 2016

    2015 Taylors Jaraman Chardonnay
    Nearly equal amounts of Chardonnay from the Clare Valley and Adelaide Hills went into the production of this refined style of white wine. In the glass, it is a pale straw color with glints of green. With aeration, restrained aromas of roasted nut, cream, citrus, green melon, and green apple slowly emerge. In the mouth, a piquant acidity balances out the butter and cream flavors, while a noticeable ashy minerality thread runs through it, and a fleshier white peach fruit profile comes to the fore. It is clean through to the finish, with a little echo of green fruit at the end. This is not a big butterball style of Chardonnay û it is meant to be enjoyed with food. Cantonese-style stir-fried chicken and veggies or Asian chicken salad will show off the refinement that is the hallmark of this wine.

    Wine Reviews: Taylors - Clare Valley
    Light gold color. Aromas of green and yellow apple, almond, honeysuckle, white tea and notes of seashells. Plump and juicy on the palate but this sports surprising acidity and a fresh sense of minerals to contrast the honey and nougat richness from the French oak. Peach, baked apple and a spritz of lime mix well together in this well-balanced, vivacious Chardonnay. 51% of the fruit comes from Clare Valley, 49% from Adelaide Hills.
