Good Wine Good Will - Gourmet Traveller Wine

After losing their homes and jobs to the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires, Ali Rees and David Laity used the money they received from the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal to begin Goodwill Wine; a business set up to source quality boutique wine from regions around Australia, and pass on 50 per cent of the profit to charities including the Australian Conservation Foundation, the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal and Victorian Bushfire Brigades among many others.

The team have so far raised nearly $15,000 (now $95,000) for charity, and each bottle bears a beautifully painted label, depicting the nature of the specific organisation they are supporting.

Chardonnay 2015
Nose: This is a classic Yarra Valley Chardonnay exhibiting aromas of peach, nectarine and minerals along with some complex barrel characters. Palate: This wine displays a lovely balance between minerals and delicate fruit sweetness with hints of ginger and spice. A nice line of acid and some creaminess coming from time on wood provides length without overdominance. This is an extremely easy drinking style guaranteed to suit even the fussiest of palates. Method: All fruit is hand-picked in the morning and refrigerated overnight. The following morning the grapes were whole-bunch pressed. No enzymes were used, instead the juice was allowed to settle naturally. Fermentation was allowed to start naturally on full solids with no acid addition. After a select period of time, the juice was inoculated with with cultured yeast and then transferred to a combination of wood and tank for fermentation. The wine is aged in only old oak, with no new oak in the blend. The wine was then left on lees for approximately 3 months, with no battonage. Just prior to bottling the wine was cold stabalised, fined and filtered. Notes: This is a wine that will suit many foods, occasions and palates. It is a great all-rounder made by Franco D'Anna and represents exceptional value at $15.
