2018 Mottiar Chardonnay


Winemaker's Notes:

Fruity aromas evince pear, pineapple, nectarine and apricot, and a trace of cashew.  The mouthfeel is soft, round and supple, leaving a tangy finish.   Flavours suggest pineapple, lime, green apple and honey.

Hand harvested at winemaker Shiraz Mottiar’s home vineyard on September 18th as grape sugars averaged 21.2° Brix.

Primary fermentation used wild yeast in older French oak puncheons, followed by partial malolactic conversion.  The wine remained in barrel for 9 months to age on fine lees.  Sixty cases were bottled in July 2019.  

Quantity bottled was only 60 cases.

Dry: 0 sugar

At the time of bottling, alcohol measured 12.5%, residual sugar 0 grams per litre, titratable acidity 6.1 grams per litre and pH 3.2.
