2016 Mottiar Chardonnay INSIDERS

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose offers a fruity collage of pear, lemon and green apple and a slice of coconut cream pie.  Energetically-textured flavours resemble pear, apple and lemon custard with citrusy and flinty accents.

Hand-picked at the Mottiar Vineyard on September 14th as grape sugars averaged 20.8° 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.  Bottled in August 2017.  Enjoy now through 2025.

At the time of bottling  alcohol measured 12%, residual sugar 1.4 grams per litre, titratable acidity 5.5 grams per litre and pH 3.4.

Only 59 cases available.

Vegan friendly.

Companion Foods:

Serve near 10° C with grilled fish, shrimp, chicken or pork, or pasta in cream sauce.
