Chardonnay (Unwooded) 2017

A cool and extended fermenting period was the main winemaking orientation with the outstanding estate fruit in 2017. Our Chardonnay exhibits some lemon, abundant honey dew melon and pear on the nose.

The palate consists of up front lime, pear and powerful white stone fruit, fresh acid with creaminess and textural mid palate length generated by some lees contact in tank prior to bottling.

This allowed the fruit to express itself with little human intervention and also with little preservative being used throughout the maturation period.

Suitable for drinking now and will age in bottle for up to four years due to the fine acid balance. Best food matching is Seafood and Pasta and served chilled.

A brilliant wine, from a brilliant year to follow on from the massive successful 2016 Chardonnay.
