2018 Moira Chardonnay SKIN

  • Sold Out! - 3 Pack

Winemaker Notes:

Spicy aromas suggest tropical fruit, citrus peel and honeysuckle.  The palate intrigues with a slight, almost saline tingliness.  Flavours capture mandarin orange, pineapple and melon, leaving a toasty, mineral finish.

Picked from 23-year-old vines at the Moira Vineyard on September 21st as grape sugars averaged 21.7 ° Brix.

Hand-harvested chardonnay grapes were sorted, destemmed and layered into a ceramic “orb”.  The wine and grape skins were given extended contact to complete primary and malo-lactic fermentation over a six-month period.  After this, the wine was transferred, with minimal oxygen exposure to maintain fresh aromatics, to a stainless-steel barrel to mature for another 12 months. 

The wine filled 28 cases in March 2020.

At the time of bottling, Alcohol measured: 13%,  Residual sugar: 0 grams per Litre; titratable acidity: 5.0 grams per Litre; pH: 3.8

Dry: 0 g/L residual sugar

Vegan friendly.
