Prancing Horse Chardonnay 2010 – Mornington Peninsula, Victoria

Prancing Horse Estate are pioneers of biodynamic winemaking on the Mornington Peninsula. Their property is surrounded by bush and pasture and oversees Western Port Bay and Bass Strait.

They are committed to a sustainable agricultural path and in the vineyard, meticulous shoot thinning and canopy management leads to low yields and optimum fruit quality. Their fine wine obsession has led to partnerships with leading exponents of biodynamic winemaking – Pascal Marchand in Burgundy and Patrick Piuze in Chablis.

The Prancing Horse embraces the qualities we seek to capture in our wines here at Bacash – elegance, complexity, excitement and power. In applying organic and bio dynamic practices they seek to maximise the flavour potential and fruit balance in their vineyards.

This 2010 Chardonnay is a well-balanced, easy drinking white – perfectly paired with food or by itself.

“Light straw-green; an elegant and finely tuned wine, with subtle barrel ferment inputs into a relatively light-bodied palate; the flavours are of white peach, melon and fig until citrusy acidity comes through on the finish.”
James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion
