2019 Wallis Chardonnay

2019 Wallis Chardonnay

2019 Wallis Chardonnay

Flinty upfront, this well-rounded Wallis has ripe citrus, lemon curd, hints of almond, fresh mandarin and green mango traversing the palate. The fruit is sweet and balanced and continues to linger as the mineral acid drives through and defines the finish.

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.)
