2018 Yarra Yering Chardonnay
Hand harvested grapes placed in a blast chiller overnight before whole bunch pressing. This gives us very high quality juice, 24 hours settling before transferred to French oak barrels; some 228 L barriques and some 500L puncheons, 30% new oak. Both wild yeasts and cultured yeast were allowed to carry out the fermentation offering complexity and a hint of struck match.
Natural acidity was retained by inhibiting malolactic fermentation.
Maturation for 10 months in our cool underground cellar before blending and bottling.
Tasting Note: Finesse combine with pillowy fruit weight, this is a wine that is fine boned with citrus flavours dominating in its youth. A citrus energy drives the palate with a pithy interest and texture on the back palate. An extremely fine grained oak tannin framework lingers on the finish.
Origin: Yarra Valley, Australia
