Derek’s 90’s love-affair with dance parties and techno music has inspired this range of red wines. The passion morphed with his school nickname Deadly Derek to became DJ Deadly. He used to make CD for friends with his best DJ mixes and signed them Mixed by DJ Deadly. The Amplifier Chardonnay is just another one of his creations.
With a light straw hue the nose opens with lifted melon, peach, grilled nuts and a clove/cinnamon like character on the nose. The palate is mid weighted but with good flavour intensity. It shows succulent white peach and tinned pear juice with hints of mint and mushy peas. With a lovely pithy texture on the palate due to leaving the wine on lees in French oak. With the French oak imparting subtle clove and biscuity notes, With crisp balanced acidity and good drive to the finish it is a lovely
approachable wine that would go well with roast chicken and creamy pasta dishes.
