On The Grapevine Chardonnay
Australia – 2018
Tasting Note: A rich, textured wine with fruit-forward peach flavours, well-balanced with the ‘buttery’ feel of old school Chardonnay.
Food Matching: Perfect on its own or with fresh roast chicken with spring vegetables
Vineyard: Selected fruit parcels were harvested in the cool of night at optimum maturity levels to maintain freshness and flavour
Vinification: The Chardonnay juice was pressed and clarified immediately after crushing and inoculated with selected yeasts. The wine was then fermented to dryness and then stirred on yeast lees for a period of three months to build texture and creaminess. A portion of this wine was also fermented on premium French Oak staves and allowed to complete full malolactic fermentation. This portion was then back blended in to the wine to add complexity and subtle oak influence. The wine then received a light fining before being clarified and stored cold to maintain freshness.
