2018 Forgotten Row Chardonnay

Winemaker's Notes:

The scent brings thoughts of apple crisp, citrus, pear and ginger.  A taste finds a supple, luxurious mouthfeel, while flavours suggest apple, kiwi, lime, baking spices and caramel.

Harvested by hand from our Estate and Moira Vineyards on October 8th as grape sugars averaged 22.1° Brix.

The wine was oak-fermented, 15% in new barrels, 30% in 1,000-L casks and the remainder in neutral oak.  After primary and full malo-lactic fermentation, the wine rested a further 10 months in French oak.  Bottling in August 2019 filled 158 cases.

DRY: 2.5 g/L

At the time of bottling, alcohol measured 13%; residual sugar, 2.5 grams per Litre, titratable acidity, 6.1 grams per Litre and pH: 3.62.
