The palate offers a seamless transition, with stone fruit flavours leading to a juicy yet gently weighted experience, finely textured and harmonious.

The wine’s elegant structure culminates in a crisp, lengthy finish, leaving a lasting impression on the palate. Elegantly compressed and expressed, ‘Blue Moon’ Chardonnay 2021 stands as a tribute to the fusion of finesse and flavour. Whether enjoyed on its own or paired with culinary delights such as sawfish steak and leafy salads with leeks, this wine invites you to revel in the elegance of Southern Fleurieu’s vineyards.
