Chardonnay (Unwooded) 2018

A relatively cool and extended fermenting period was the main winemaking orientation with the outstanding fruit in 2018. The dry but cool Summer has led to outstanding white varietals this harvest.

Our Chardonnay, without the use of oak, exhibits fresh melons with undertones of citrus on the nose. The palate consist of up front white stone fruits, fresh acid with some creaminess and length generated by extended lees contact in tank prior to bottling.

This has allowed the clean fruit to express itself with little human intervention, and also with minimal preservative being used throughout the maturation period. Suitable for drinking now and will age in bottle for up to four years.
