2016 was a great Chardonnay year. In the vineyard we experienced good flavour development, good natural acidity, and low disease pressure. The 2016 Chardonnay required a relatively long oak maturation to balance fruit weight and oak flavours. Long lees contact time has also been used to build texture and weight in this wine. We decided to blend some Arneis into this wine for some
With a dash of Arneis, this Chardonnay is pale gold in colour. Aromas of nectarine, white peach and tropical fruits mingle with subtle oak on the nose. The palate has tropical fruit acidity and a fresh slightly chalky texture.
PH 3. T/A 7.0 g/L R/S 4 g/L Alc 13.5%
Served perfectly with wild – sourced pheasant.
Enjoy now or cellar for 2 to 5 years.
