Skin Fermented Chardonnay


91 Pts.  “For me, a very successful exercise of fermentation of Chardonnay on the skins.  The nose is clear, with accents of orange and lemon oil, a small toasted element, and a beautiful equilibrium.  Tasty, has a beautiful texture and persists in a pleasant way in the mouth.”

Sommeliers Note:
This wine impresses with a rich golden colour, with just a touch of green. Cooked tropical fruit (mango, papaya) with savoury chutney spices (cumin, allspice).  Opens up to more sarsaparilla than spicy.  Rich on the pallet with a pleasant hazelnut finish.  Soft acidity and a touch of tannin.  

Winemakers Note:

This vintage was made from fruit we sourced from our vineyard in The County From a really remarkable vintage (2017) and we are very happy with the results. This chardonnay was whole cluster, skin fermented and macerated for 16 days.

It was then pressed and left on its heavy lees In barrel for 16 months. This time really softened the natural tannin of the fruit and it was allowed to clarify naturally.

We have focused much of our production on making approachable natural and this one is very delicious. As always we bottled this wine unfiltered and by hand.
