2020 Grace Town Margaret River Chardonnay
Grace Town is a special project by Fran Kysela and Kysela Pere et Fils, highlighting impressive terroirs and fruit-driven wines. The project currently features a Chardonnay from Australia’s famed Margaret River, and three red selections – Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and a Red Blend – from the diverse Lodi region.
The Margaret River region is known around the world for its top-quality wines and food. While the region produces less than three per cent of Australia’s wine, it accounts for more than a fifth of its premium wine.
Coastal influences in the Margaret River area yield chardonnay with tropical fruit notes. The palate is delightfully complex, yet soft, with excellent fruit intensity, gingerbread and spice from the French oak. Ripe white nectarine and melon characters are paired with a fresh grapefruit acidity. All these flavor components will further develop, with some cellaring, to create a palate that is textural, ripe and lingering.
