2021 Sister's Run Babylon Block Chardonnay

The Collective Review

Our obsession with Elena Brooks continues.

When making wine, it's all about understanding your customer. And Elena gets it. She makes wines that people love. Wines of heart and soul, that simply taste GOOD. No excessive oak or harsh tannins. Just a whole lot of flavour at a ridiculous price.

She’s wowed us with her work at Dandelion and Heirloom Vineyards and now she's wowed us all with this latest vintage of Sister's Run Babylon Block Chardonnay.

In a word? Fun. That's how we'd describe the Babylon Block Chardonnay 2021. It's designed for easy drinking. Nothing too complicated, just a good wine for a good time. And guess what? It’s exclusive to The Wine Collective.

Sure, we could get into the intricate details; the aromas of white stone fruits, layered with honeysuckle and layered with subtle nuances of oak.

For those seeking flavor at a reasonable price, this is for you. Simple stone-fruit flavors, a dollop of vanillin oak allusions and a soft, sudsy and somewhat chewy finish with a linger of peaches in syrup. Drink now. Screw cap.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Ultra light golden and faintly viscous. Nose: Lemon zest, talcum powder, Fleur de Sel. A perfumed and distantly musky chardonnay with stone fruit aromatics in wait. Identifiable, attractive, approachable chardonnay. Entry: A full palate of white wine; chardonnay running on all cylinders.. Middle Palate: Ripe stone fruits such as nectarine and peach; just enough green apple flesh for balance; a knife point of mango. Textural across the palate, with some grip and breadth. Finish: Finally, a sluicing of cleansing acidity, making for a complete wine. Pairs well with roast chicken. As simple as you dare.

Winemakers Note

A true expression of Chardonnay grown in McLaren Vale in all its fruitful glory. We aim to rekindle the love of Chardonnay. A reference to tropical fruits such as rockmelon and pineapple lurking in the background on the entry, bright acidity with juicy peach and butterscotch notes. Freshness to intense tropical fruits with a textural, nutty finish.
