Description

CHARDONNAY 2018

Inspired by our surroundings we reflect on the essential nature of the Murray Darling to create wines of distinction and sustainability

THE VINTAGE

Warm, dry weather during the 2018 harvest restricted our crop levels and helped to produce exceptional fruit quality with plenty of aromatics and flavour. Lower rain levels during the growing season translated into smaller berries packing their punch, making our winemakers very happy!

THE WINEMAKING

Once harvested, the fruit was crushed and pressed, and the juice cold settled and racked to ferment. The ferment was carried out with selected yeast with a portion fermented in oak. After some time, the wine was blended, stabilised, clarified and bottled.

THE WINE

Aromatic with lots of ripe tropical fruit characters with fleshy mouth-filling varietal fruit flavours supported by good acid line.

THE FOOD

Enjoy with soft cheeses, pork and poultry dishes.
