Our first vintage of Savagnin off our unique vineyard here at the Estate was in 2010 and we have been on a learning curve ever since. Our 2012 is the culmination of a six-year ageing trial to see the effects of cellaring and we must say this wine has responded incredibly well.
The nose is subtle with hints of sweet, smoked hay. Nutty and rounded on the palate with just a small bite of acidity giving it great length while still retaining some freshness. The palate is mouth filling and quite exciting to behold for a six-year old white that continues to surprise.
With the richness of the wine comes the perfect opportunity to try a leek & fish pie. The creamy richness of the dish will marry well with the alluring nature of this wine.
This wine looks amazing in the glass. Brilliantly polished, sparklingly clear and pale straw in colour. Simply stunning.
The nose is pretty and floral with ester aromas of pear skins and a creamy background that reminds us of “Milko” lollies. The use of Jura oak (Origin of Savagnin) has markedly enhanced the florals in this wine.
Like all past Caméléon’s there is a depth & complexity that is always about mouthfeel and texture which is well supported by yellow peach & toasted almond flavours. Drink now – 2026.
With a bit of extra body in the wine enjoy with Salmon dressed in a Ginger Soy and served with Asian greens.
Our first ever Estate grown Blanc de Blanc and it is stunning. Named for Nick’s beautiful wife Chloë, this wine is one of the best.
Chloë exhibits the classic characters true to style. Green apples are a standout and further complexed by baked apple strudel pastry and aromatic esters that come from 12 months on yeast lees in bottle.
The palate has a fine mouse and shows creamy yeast autolysis characters of fresh brioche and delicate aldehyde leading to a crisp acidity on the finish. This is a fun wine to enjoy now and over the next few years.
Serve with a grilled crayfish tail and a delicate champagne (sparkling!) sauce. (Google it – Poh’s Kitchen)
An icon of the Glandore stable and from a generous 2018 Vintage this will be a wine for now and tomorrow.
Showing a bright straw hue and a complex nose of fresh French oak, white peach, cinnamon, hints of delicate florals and tease of a bouquet garni. The palate now is compact and tight with fantastic length but as this wine ages you will see its generosity open up with richness and depth. A lemon butter zest and stone fruits drive the palate and linger on for a long time.
This complex wine needs maybe a complex food match. We suggest a Chicken Tagine with preserved lemon and olives
As the Summers get hotter and the winters drier, fruit yields are down. We were very fortunate to secure a small parcel of Semillon from the famed Maluna Vineyard to blend with the fruit off the Glandore Estate.
The blending of these two vineyards has created a very aromatic, fresh style of Semillon. Aromas of lemon pith and curd are highlighted by hints of tropical pineapple. The generous palate shows a sherberty texture with a long length of flavour and a grapefruit like finish.
Not one of our longest living Semillons but should comfortably cellar for 5-7 years and still show those lovely aged characters.
Semillon works so well with oysters but try with a lemon cured kingfish ceviche dressed with finely chopped spring onions and lemon zest.
