Vintage:2012 Colour:White Style:Dry
2013 is an exciting vintage for Chardonnay with terrific balance of flavour, texture and acidity. The wines are quite fine and composed considering a relatively warm February.
Grapes are hand picked, whole bunch crushed, pressed and allowed to settle overnight. The turbid juice is then racked to older French oak casks (225L, 500L and 5700L) where it undergoes natural fermentation. Lees are stirred in late autumn, a little in winter and then
left to rest until the finishing stages.
Appearance -Light straw with a green edge.
Bouquet -Quite fine, hints of white flowers and hazelnut, subtle oak influence.
Palate -Minerally, textural, nervy, drying phenolics, brioche, length.
