Description

Selaks have called this Chardonnay buttery because it is smooth, creamy and simply melts in your mouth! The beautifully integrated toasty oak results in flavours of brioche and vanilla, while still enabling the delightful ripe stone fruit characters to shine through.

The grapes for this wine were direct pressed with no skin contact to preserve freshness. The juice was then clarified, and innoculated with a specific yeast strain specially selected for Chardonnay. The moderately clarified juice was transferred into French oak barriques for barrel fermentation. After ferment the wine was left in barrel to undergo malolactic fermentation then further left on yeast lees until racking and blending in January 2018. The final product is a 'Buttery' white wine, true to Chardonnay character, with undertones of fruit qualities renowned in the region.

Food Pairing: Stunning with crayfish or pumpkin risotto.
