Protero Gumeracha Chardonnay

Winery Story

Back in the mid 90's Frank Baldasso, Director and Founder of Four Seasons Fresh Produce, was planning what to do in his retirement years and... (more...) settled on pursuing his dream of owning and running a vineyard. It was not until 1998 that a property at Gumeracha became available -- an 80-acre piece of grazing land with an apple and pear orchard on it. In the meantime, Frank had met Dennis Vice, a highly respected viticulturist from the Coonawarra wine region and founder of the highly prized "Highbank" Label. Frank took him on as a consultant for the development of his vineyard, with a view to produce very high quality wine. Protero comes from the word Proterozoic, which literally means "Former Life" or "The Life which came First". The Proterozoic geological epoch dates back in time some 570 million to 2.6 billion years. It was during this epoch that multi-cellular life began to form and according to the soil report, some of the soil comes from the remnants of the basement stones that were formed during this time span.

Tasting Note

With a nose of fresh honeydew melon and a palate of juicy stone fruits and firm citrus acidity, Protero Chardonnay pairs perfectly with seaf... (more...)ood, curries and anything from the grill.
