Aroma & Palate
White peach, bready, creamy
Delicate & creamy
This is a wine with great delicacy showcasing white stone-fruit flavours along with attractive subtle brioche character. The barrel fermentation brings a delightful creaminess to the mid-palate. Overall, the wine is beautifully balanced with well integrated oak acting in support of the fruit and the tight acidity ensuring freshness. The length is superb and the wine finishes with enjoyable persistence.
About the Winery
The Taylor family's long-standing association with the Clare Valley begins in the late 1950s when as Sydney wine merchants, they partnered with the Clare Valley Co-operative to bottle and distribute their own wines under the Chateau Clare label.
Then, inspired by the great producers of Bordeaux, and with a vision to craft wines that rival the best in the world, the Taylor family begin an exploration to find the perfect plot of land on which to establish their family estate. On July 20, 1969, their quest brought them to a site by the Wakefield River in South Australia's Clare Valley. So on the same day that Neil Armstrong takes man's first steps onto the moon, Bill Taylor takes his first steps on the soil that will eventually become the family estate.
