This is a very pleasing and easy to drink example of Chardonnay...
The nose has this buttered popcorn meets quince, meets pineapple, meets vanilla wafer thing going.
We're excited about the return of this wine. 3 years since the last vintage. Now available.
This is a staff favourite vintage for this wine and is being compared to the 2012 & 2011 vintages.
We kiln dried the fruit for 5 weeks and then carbonic macerated in stainless steel tank for 7 days.
The nose is intensely aromatic, like a pineapple and a peach had a baby.The palate is ripe and juicy, yet still dry and fresh.
There is a lot going on in our first white blend. The nose is intense, fruit forward, tropical and floral.
We used carbonic maceration for 7 days in stainless tanks and then pressed the grapes into one of our 2000L concrete diamonds, a 1500L clay pot and a 500L clay pot where it finished fermenting.
This is a richer example than the white label 2019 Chenin we produced. The botrytis concentrates the palate, but also alters the complexity of the nose.
