Premium Chardonnay 2017

Finesse and elegance are our main focus when crafting our old block, ultra low cropping single vineyard Premium Chardonnay. 2017 was a fantastic year for Chardonnay vintage.

Fermented cool in 25% new barrels, 50% one year barrels and the remainder aged for ten months in used barrels, with cultured yeast and wild yeast ferments’ incorporated, our co wild fermented Chardonnay has eventuated in a unique modern style to complement lighter food styles.

The complex ‘bouquet’ of this wine reveals a subtle minerality, blending in with fresh Lemon and Citrus aromatics followed by discreet chariness and sweetness of the best French oak.

Through weekly traditional ‘batonnage’- lees stirring - a creamy and multi layered texture has been achieved on the palate, balanced by the refreshing natural acid on the finish. Malolactic fermentation was a minimal winemaking factor

Harvest 2017 was a totally unique year for grape growing in Albany, leading to some unique wines from this spectacular season.
