This Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented in french oak with 25-30% of this being new oak. To add complexity to the wine all of it goes through natural yeast fermentation, as well all of it goes through complete malo-lactic fermentation. This wine received extended lees contact for ten months with weekly stirring. Then a further eight months barrel maturation. The longer time in barrel restricts this wines openness for a few months so be patient. Minimal handling and filtration ensures maximum flavour is retained. The nose of the Chardonnay is showing peaches and white nectarine. The stone fruit flavours carry on to the palate combining with a hint of lemon. Minerality and subtle oak with inherent acid create a textural multi layered Chardonnay that stays true to the style we are known for. This wine will cellar for 10 years plus.
