2019 Small Lot Chardonnay

Winemaker's Notes

Crisp fragrances of apple slices with cream and a delicate citrusy inference.  A mouthful is bright and playfully textured, with flavours reminding of green apple, honey and toasted almond.

Grapes were hand-picked from our original Moira site at average 21.6° brix.  

After whole-cluster pressing, the juice finished primary fermentation in stainless steel.  The majority of the wine settled and aged on the lees in a horizontal steel tank, while a small remainder was directed to steel barrels.  Nine months later, 389 cases were bottled in July 2020.

At the time of bottling, alcohol measured 12.5%, residual sugar 2.5 grams per litre, titratable acidity 6.7 grams per litre and pH 3.29.

This vintage will drink well through 2024.
