Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of melon, citrus, grilled nuts, and toasty French oak .The palate is beautifully balanced with a complex and creamy mouth-feel coming from extended ageing on lees. Excellent depth of fruit combines delightfully with savoury nuances. Shows lovely line and length right the way through the fine refreshing finish.
Vineyard Notes
The fruit for the Chardonnay was hand harvested in late February to maintain the integrity of the grape bunches and the freshness of the fruit delivered to the winery. The warm vintage conditions ensured an early harvest to maintain the natural balanced acidity of the berries.
Winemaker Notes
The Chardonnay was whole bunch pressed to maintain the delicate fruit character of the grapes and to avoid any unwanted flavours. The juice was the transferred to French oak barriques, where slow fermentation took place over a six week period. Malolactic fermentation was discouraged to preserve the natural grape acidity and freshness. The wine was then aged on lees for the following ten months to develop mid palate texture and complexity.
