The story of Nugan Estate spans over 80 years, three generations, and displays determination, passion and grit. In 1938, Alfredo and Annelise Nugan fled their home village of Alcira, Spain and migrated to Australia. As immigrants they brought with them aspects of European culture including the enjoyment of wine. Nugan Estate completed their first commercial vintage in 2000. The family built a state-of-the-art winery that was completed in 2002, sourcing wine grapes from premium vineyards in the Riverina, King Valley, Langhorne Creek, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, and Wrattonbully regions.
Today, Nugan Estate is owned and operated by Alfredo and Annelise’s grandson, Matthew Nugan. Matthew maintains the family traditions and shares their passion for good wine. Matthew has been integral in the growth of the family business since 1984.
This is a fresh and fruit driven style of Chardonnay. Aromas of white peach and nectarine with hints of roasted nuts and sweet spices. On the palate, bright citrus and peach fruit with toasted nut cashew undertones. Perfect with chicken and seafood dishes.
To retain the delicate natural aromas and flavours, select parcels of fruit were crushed and lightly pressed prior to clarification and cool fermentation. Fermentation was undertaken at cool temperatures to preserve much of the delicate fruit flavours in the presence of French oak, adding spice and complexity to the blend.
