Chardonnay 2020

$30.00 inc. GST

EXTREMELY LIMITED STOCK. Modern and delicate style of Chardonnay, fresh, crisp and lean with flavours of white peach and lemon. Vintage notes Produced from our estate-grown Chardonnay grapes planted in 1978. 2020 was a difficult vintage, however, this variety was one of the few that pulled through. Yields in 2020 were heavily reduced by the extended drought and the smoke from bushfires in 2019/20 eliminated most of our crop. However, the levels of smoke taint in this fruit were low and we researched and used some careful winemaking techniques identified by the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI) to eliminate any remaining taint. Even so before deciding to bottle the wine we made sure to submit it to a panel of winemakers in the region trained by the AWRI to detect smoke taint and in a blind tasting they were not able to detect any trace of taint. The wine has seen minimal skin contact, has not been matured in oak barrels and has not undergone malolactic fermentation which results in a much leaner, crisp and fruity style of Chardonnay that works well with a large range of foods.
