Ocean Eight is one of the leading wineries on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula; making tiny quantities of exceptional, hand-crafted wines. Over the years the team at Ocean Eight have honed the style of their ‘Verve’ Chardonnay and its now firmly entrenched as one of Australia’s most distinctive and distinguished examples of Chardonnay.
The grapes for Verve Chardonnay are typically picked one week earlier than any other vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula and only old barrels are used for vinification to highlight the vibrancy of the grapes.
The 2018 Ocean Eight Verve Chardonnay is another intensely flavoured, racy version of Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay; soft white peach complimenting a backbone of crisp grapefruit acidity and lemon curd texture. The style is lean and clean with impeccable balance and length.
"The new Verve shows distinctive grapefruit & lemon on the nose alongside some mineral components. The palate almost gives you the illusion of richness due to the intensity of the fruit, then the crisp, dry finish kicks and lingers in an extended aftertaste. It drinks beautifully in its youth, as a fresh & vibrant Chardonnay. With Age this wine will develop further toffee and honey flavours. Drink for 10yrs+ Some great foods to match would be the freshest of crayfish, something rich like kingfish, and/or our local favourite, Flounder."- Ocean Eight Wines
