It's the texture and flow that separate Shaun's Dapple wines from others!

Description

A case of celebrating the difference with a step up in the level of chalkiness and a little extra phenolic grip. A very subtly placed layer of oak. A little baking spice. Almost a nuance of spearmint. The lees time building body. Very tightly coiled just post bottling this has much, much more to give as it recovers from the shock of bottling, resolves and builds generosity.

Why is this Wine so Yummy?

Notes by Shaun

“Sur le Crete” means on the ridge. Single vineyard Chardonnay grown @ 179m above sea level in the rich red volcanic soils of Main Ride on the Mornington Peninsula planted in 1987. 6 months on lees.

Tasting Notes

This wine displays a richer, broader aromatic profile of nectarine, white peach, hazelnuts and spice. The peach extends to the palate, along with apple that’s paired with buttery, lemony acidity. This is much rounder in the mouth than its Yarra counterpart and has sneaky nutty finish.

About Dappled

“I started Dappled in 2009 with a view to make high quality, unadulterated wines from special patches of dirt at realistic prices.  I make these wines first and foremost for my family and friends, so a hand-crafted, minimal intervention philosophy just makes perfect sense to me.”
Shaun Crinion

In the Vineyard

“Coming from the duplex soils (red volcanic and mud stone loams) of Macclesfield this was the ideal site for the season. Dijon clone 76’ reacted well to the cooler weather on this site and resulted in a detailed and generous fruit.”
