Description

  • Spicy oak
  • Vanilla & baked croissant
  • Savoury & mineral notes
  • Soft acidity

Fine aromatics of vanilla and grape-fruit along with savoury and spicy oak notes. Some toasty baked croissant notes also. The palate shows excellent weight with a soft acid structure that draws the flavours across the palate. Lovely toasty and savoury notes come through but not at the expense of the fruit expression. Expect this wine to develop toasty and mineral notes under its natural cork closure.

All grapes were harvested on one day and whole bunch pressed to tank for brief settling. After 12 hours the still cloudy juice was transferred to barrel (4 x 300L and 2 x 225L, 50% new) for a natural fermentation. After going through 100% malo-lactic fermentation the wine was aged on its full lees, without sulphur, for nine months. Prior to bottling the components were blended together and then bottled without fining, stabilisation or filtration.

Food Pairing: A full-bodied and pure expression of Chardonnay which will match most rich seafood and white meat dishes.

An interesting one, more depth of flavour than usual chards and with hints of class, all up very enjoyable. 4.5 really. And with no additives, appears to be good for you. What's not to like?
