Our 2021 Chardonnay is a blend of four micro-harvests picked over 2 weeks to capture specific attributes in the fruit. 81% was aged 6 months in French oak, 33% new and 67% old. The last harvest of 19% was aged in stainless steel. 20% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation.
This process embraces the beautiful bright acidity while building mouthfeel, complexity and aromatics. Aromas of fresh citrus, stone fruit and melon with notes of brioche and sea salt. The palate is dry with mouth-watering acidity and builds on the aromas with further flavours of tropical fruit and pronounced minerality. Full on the palate with a long, fresh finish.
