Oceans Eight Verve Chardonnay 2015

Owned by the Aylward family - founders of the renowned Kooyong winery - Ocean Eight was established in 2004 in the southern and cooler side of Mornington Peninsula. In their state-of-the-art, temperature controlled, gravity-fed winery winemaker Mike Aylward produces stunning cool-climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir taking influence from the great old world wine regions of Alsace, Burgundy and Champagne. All the grapes for the Ocean Eight wines are sourced from the family's 17 hectares of vineyards and their total production each year is just 5,000 cases only.

Vineyard

The grapes come from 18 year old vines, in a six acre block of Chardonnay. The clones are a mix of P58, l10, 96 and 277. The soil is sandy loam which has excellent drainage and provides good nutrients for vine health and flavours - particularly minerality. The vineyard has an elevation of 65 metres above sea level and faces North West with great airflow, which minimises disease pressure as the canopy dries quickly.

Winemaking

The fruit was picked to highlight the citrus spectrum, in particular grapefruit, hence the name 'verve' which accurately describes the racy character of this wine. The musts were cold fermented over four to six weeks, in order to maximise the aromatics. The wine was pressed and gravity fed directly into old oak barrels of six to eight years, in the underground barrel room. Here the wine spent 11 months in oak and was fined with bentonite only prior to bottling.

Tasting Note

Leading the way for the new generation Aussie Chardonnay, the name Verve encapsulates its style. A vibrant perfume of Granny Smith apple, honeysuckle blossom and lime zest is mirrored on the palate. Low alcohol thanks to the early pick style and a mouth-watering finish.

Serving Suggestion

This is the perfect match with oysters, prawn tempura or whitebait.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
