No other variety allows the winemaker so much room to move in terms of flavour modification in the winery. In this wine we have used wild fermentation, barrel fermentation in new and one year old oak, yeast lees stirring and some solids inclusion in the ferment to produce a richly flavoured complex wine.
AROMA: A lifted aroma of wild ferment funk with white peach, lemon meringue, pear and cap gun with hints of pastry, white flowers, almond meal and restrained, integrated oak.
FLAVOUR: A fine delicate wine with intense flavour displaying white peach, grapefruit, citrus and oyster shell flavours with a tight minerally acid structure. It is a complex style with a chalky mouthfeel and subtle attractive supporting oak characters.
VARIETY: Chardonnay, Mendoza clone.
ANALYSIS: Alc/Vol: 13.0%, Titratable Acidity:6.8 g/L, pH: 3.26, Residual Sugar: < 0.5 g/L.
