Description

Elegant and complex fruit flavours – crisp persistent finish.

Babich have been producing Irongate Chardonnay since 1985 and it has evolved into this richly flavoured, balanced and elegant wine. The vines from this now famous Gimblett Gravels ‘Irongate’ vineyard has select pruning and monitors crop levels closely to ensure excellent flavour concentration in the grapes. Selected parcels of hand harvested fruit were gently whole bunch pressed. The free run was put to French oak, for wild fermentation. After primary ferment the wine was lees stirred to add complexity and build palate weight. The wine spent just under ten months in barrel before assembly and bottling. Recommended cellaring: 3-15 years

Food Pairing: Irongate Chardonnay is an intense, richly flavoured wine and is an ideal match for rich seafood and white meat dishes. Try it with chargrilled squid and lemon butter sauce, or barbecued chicken.
