Estate Chardonnay 2016

The fruit was handpicked, whole bunch pressed and the unclarified juice was fermented in new, one and two year old French Oak Barriques. The wine was then stirred monthly during its eleven months maturation to build weight and complexity, and to retain fruit freshness.

The bouquet has a complex floral lift of citrus and stone fruit, with some secondary barrel ferment lees aromas. The palate has cool climate white fleshy stone fruits, citrus and savory nutty barrel ferment flavours. The wine has good palate weight and fine natural acid that leads to a long persistent finish. 6 to 8 years bottle age recommended
