2022 Estate Chardonnay

2022 Estate Chardonnay

A mix of white blossom, mealy aromas and almond essence steal the nose. This is complimented on the palate by a fresh kiwi zing, chalky phenolics and mineral drive. This wine has a beautiful shape and balance that reflects  the perfect ripening conditions of the 2022 season.

Wine Profile

Vintage
Other Notes
The 2022 season started with a very wet and variable spring before and during flowering, resulting in small bunches and berries and reduced yields across most sites. However, the exceptional mild summer and autumn months that followed provided perfect ripening conditions, resulting in great concentration, striking flavours and acidity across all varieties.

Winemaking
Winemaker Notes
Each parcel of fruit was handpicked, hand sorted and whole bunch pressed separately. The fruit was racked and transferred to a combination of new and older oak barrels to carry out a wild fermentation. Varied levels of malolactic fermentation took place amongst individual barrels to capture the balance within the wine. After 10 months of oak maturation, the wine was filtered and bottled.
