Springfield Wine Estate, Robertson

Springfield wines have always been a favourite. Their Robertson wine drinks well and their story tells well. The winery has been around forever – or so it seems. The brother and sister team heading the business is the fourth generation to do so. Its not just about the wine, it is about the sharing of wine making history.   Arriving at the estate visitors are given a sense of welcome with a tree lined lane all the way down to the tasting room where a generous hedge of pink roses is an illustration of the elegant wines waiting.

With spring turning into summer the Springfield Chardonnays is just my thing. They have two great Chardonnay expressions. Springfield Wild Yeast and Springfield Méthode Ancienne. Springfield Wild Yeast is unwooded while Méthode Ancienne is made according to the ancient methods – methods used in Burgundy – the home of great Chardonnays. Thus wooded.  This one for twelve months. Buttery richness with a full flavour.

My bottles of Robertson Springfield Chardonnay are chilling at the recommended 13°C waiting for a special occasion.
