Vintage Conditions

A cooler and slightly wetter than average winter delayed the start of the growing season. The vineyard experienced regular rainfall and warm temperatures throughout the spring. This was followed by warm and dry summer months. Even though the temperatures during the ripening period were slightly up on average, we did not experience any days of extreme heat. This consistently warm weather enabled the grapes to develop lovely full flavours. Winemaking The grapes were hand picked in late February and early March. This wine was made using traditional Burgundian techniques and the grapes were destemmed and gently pressed. Wild fermentation occurred with the vineyard’s indigenous yeast in French oak barriques and hogsheads. There was no malolactic fermentation and limited barrel stirring to maintain the acid drive and structure of the wine. Tasting Notes This elegant Chardonnay has attractive dried herbs, cashew, some tight grapefruit, minerals and a fine integrated oak. The palate is lively and complex finishing with a fantastic length highlighting the pedigree of this wine. Tech Notes 13.3% alc, pH 3.34, TA 6.4 g/L Drink now – 2023
