2019 SV3 - Special Release - Chardonnay

The final SV3' project blend was the result of many hours of discussion and tasting and has been another important step in a broader project that we have been working on for many years and has accelerated since we moved into our new winery in 2019. This project will culminate in the launch of a new wine in 2023.

Winemaker Notes
• Fruit was hand picked, hand sorted and chilled overnight. • Whole bunch pressed to stainless steel. • The juice was settled for 24hrs then racked to barrel taking the light fluffy lees. • Fermented using indigenous yeasts and a natural malolactic fermentation (38%). • Some occasional bâtonnage to individual barrels.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes
Toasted hazelnut and praline combine beautifully with underlying hints of rockmelon and honeysuckle. The beautifully balanced phenolics give crunch to the palate while the flavours of curry leaf on the finish linger and create a well round picture of the highlights that we experience from our Main Ridge Chardonnay.
