2019 Moira Chardonnay
Expressions to the nose of Granny Smith apple, lime, pear syrup, apricot, mango and marzipan. This focused, richly textured chardonnay brings flavours in waves: tangy baked apple, pink grapefruit and pineapple, velvety white peach, honeydew melon and buttered toast, underlain by a lingering mineral salinity.
Hand-picked from the Moira Vineyard’s north block on October 7th at 21.6° Brix average grape sugar.
Destemmed chardonnay grapes went direct to press. The juice was fed into three 300-L neutral French oak barrels, where the wine completed primary and partial malolactic fermentation. After eight months, 97 cases were bottled unfiltered in July 2020.
At the time of bottling, Alcohol measured: 12.5%, Residual sugar: 1.9 grams per Litre; titratable acidity: 6.6 grams per Litre; pH: 3.29
