    Description

    The 2020 Chardonnay has subtle flavours reflective of the aromas – particularly lemon, grapefruit, stone fruit and elegant oak. The wine has a soft middle palate with good length and similar acid than in 2019.

    Winemaker's notes

    Hand-picked fruit was gently whole-bunch pressed into a tank and settled overnight. It was then transferred into French oak puncheons (20% New, 20% second use, 40% third use and 20% older) and inoculated with a neutral yeast. From April until June the barrels were stirred every two weeks until MLF was completed. For this vintage 80% completed MLF. The wine was left on yeast lees until November when it was transferred to tank to prepare for bottling. The wine was bottled early January 2021, 10 months after harvest.

    Vintage Notes

    A wet spring resulted in less than ideal flowering and fruit set. This resulted in a slightly lower than average crop. A cool summer resulted in harvest being two to three weeks later than the long term average. The season has produced wines of more delicate flavour and structure with good length and acidity.
