2019 Judd Chardonnay

2019 Judd Chardonnay

2019 Judd Chardonnay

Like a “frangipani opening up to kiss the salty air”. This Judd chardonnay is fresh and lifted with hints of green paw paw, wet stone, lemon and a mineral drive from start to finish! A wine that will continue to impress and age well.

Other Notes
Following a lower than average rainfall and relatively standard temperatures over the winter, cooler temperatures in August and September led to late budburst (our second latest) and flowering (fourth latest). However, above average temperatures and low rainfall during summer meant an early veraison and harvest (our second earliest). The period between flowering and veraison saw our warmest ever average minimums and second warmest maximums and was our second shortest (62 days against a 72 day average). Veraison to harvest was our fourth warmest (maximums) and our driest (47mm v 136mm average) and our third shortest (43 days against a 56 day average.)
