Mixed Case Chardonnay - 12 bottles (6 x 2017 & 6 x 2018)
2017 - Light golden in colour with a delicate lime green hue. Aromas of citrus blossom, cashews and lemon butter spread on lightly toasted sourdough bread. Palate is distinguished by long citrus line with rich creamy brulee mid and delicate textural finish. Burgundian – whole bunch pressed straight to barrel. Partial malolactic fermentation (MLF) allowed to occur naturally to assist with developing complexity. Lees stirring (Battonage) is used for the first two months to provide textural weight and further complexity.
2018 - Bright colour with a hint of lime green leads to aromas of white nectarine and citrus blossom with balanced vanilla oak. The palate shows flavours of stone fruit and lemon tart with great texture from oak and a crisp citrus finish. The quenching nature of this wine will always encourage another glass to be poured! A wine of impeccable balance to be enjoyed now or for many years and beyond.
