2011 Bellbrae Estate Boobs Chardonnay
We have named our premium Bellbrae Estate wines after our local Surf Breaks. Local legend has it that the ‘Boobs’ surf break is named after Bobby 'Boobs' Johnson, who was given naming rights after being the first person to surf there in the early 1960’s. However, it also may be due to the shape of the cliffs surrounding the beach……Much conjecture still remains today.
The 2011 Boobs is a hard one to characterise. A little like that person you see around the city from time to time, always dressed immaculately and in the 'right company' - you're not entirely sure what they do, but whatever it is, they're doing it well. It is light as a feather, fruit-laden and stylish of course but still manages (effortlessly) to evoke the charm and scent of a freshly picked lemon. It slips down delightfully now but you just know it will refine with all the allure and grace of an ageing beauty, leaving you reflecting - How do they do that?
