Product details

  • Winemaker

    Chester d'Arenberg Osborn and Jack Walton
  • Variety

    Chardonnay
  • The appetisingly tangy Bramley apple aroma with its delicately toasty oak seasoning evokes childhood memories of eating homemade apple pie in my grandparents' kitchen.  From vineyards that are cooler than Burgundy comes a wine that is crisp, complex and...well...cool.

    If you enjoy fine Chablis, you will appreciate this wine's zestiness, brightness of flavours and tension between richness and zingy acidity.  Great to drink already, and will grow layers of texture and complexity over the next 4-5 years.

Winemaking

At the winery the grapes passed through the gentle crusher before being basket pressed in specially designed stainless steel basket presses. Gentle extraction of the juice is critical in these stages to retain the delicate Chardonnay characters. Fermentation took place in a combination of two to four year-old French oak barriques with no malolactic fermentation. 15% of the final blend underwent wild fermentation in barrel. After seven months oak maturation, only the best barrels of Chardonnay were selected for release under The Lucky Lizard label.
