2017 Chardonnay

The fruit was harvested in the early hours of the morning and pressed to tank.  The juice was settled overnight and racked with a high proportion of juice solids prior to fermentation in stainless steel.  The wine was kept on fermentation lees and stirred regularly to build complexity and texture before bottling.

Vintage:
A classic cool climate growing season with ample rainfall and cold temperatures was followed by a dry and sunny Autumn. The result being a slow even ripening with tremendous flavour development at low sugar levels.

Colour:
Brilliant pale gold with emerald flecks.

Palate:
Honeydew melon and white peach on the palate with hints of vanilla and hazelnut and creamy textural structure underpinned by soft, mineral acidity.

Cellaring:
Ready to enjoy now.

Alcohol:
12.8%
