Chardonnay has been assaulted on the shelves by New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, whilst the wine press and sommeliers of Australia have been lured by the siren song of emerging varieties such as Vermentino, Arneis and Albarino. I may seem unfashionable (indeed for three months of the year I am inseparable from a pair of shorts and gumboots), but for myself the perfect glass of white wine is a well crafted glass of Chardonnay. The wines of Burgundy have been a source of inspiration, and the region a source of learning (during vintages 2001 and 2002) in my pursuit and enjoyment of this variety. The viticultural season preceding vintage 2013 was kind in the Adelaide Hills; low disease pressure, balanced vines and moderate yields. The lead up to harvest was spent with lots of time in the vineyard deciding on clones and picking times. A small shower in early March pushed back harvest by a week, and gave the grapes a little extra time for flavour to develop whilst sugar accumulation took a pause. On the 14th March the Chardonnay picked and brought into the winery. Basket pressing was performed with an early press cut to remove any harder edged flavour and textural components. After a short settling period to remove the coarsest of the grape solids, the cloudy juice was transferred into French oak and allowed to undergo fermentation with natural yeasts. Our oak selection was 100% French barriques with 70% new (Troncais and Allier wood from the Remond and Marsannay cooperages in Burgundy). Fermentation took six weeks to complete to dryness, and malolactic was completed in spring when the wine was then sulphured for the first time. At this point each barrel was topped but left alone on full yeast lees (stirring is not undertaken) until late May 2014 when the barrels were assembled into the final blend and prepared for bottling in July 2014. Production stands at 170 dozen. Tasting Notes Mid straw in colour with a hint of green to the hue. The aroma shows citrus fruits in the company of exotic tropical notes of pineapple and guava, accents of spice and wood smoke add to the complexity. The palate is in the medium to full-bodied style, an initial burst of lemon and white peach flavours is followed by savoury oak and hints of brioche and shortbread. The palate provides a lingering length of persistence supported by a supple acid backbone. Best from 2015 to 2020. SHIPPING RETURNS CONTACT US--> PAYMENT Shipping via Australia Post.
