Tasting Note

This wine has a youthful straw colour. Aromas of peach and papaya play with subtle oak and yeasty notes. Full bodied and fruity, the palate has a delightful creaminess as a result of ten months on yeast lees.

Winemaking

The fruit for this wine comes from Upton Run (our family vineyard) and Tarcombe Ridge (a stunning neighbouring vineyard) high in the
Strathbogie Ranges. The grapes were harvested between the 6 and 9 March 2012 during the night to ensure fruit temperature was low
to preserve primary fruit flavours.
This wine was fermented between 13 and 16˚ Celsius. The majority (85 per cent) of this wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks to
preserve primary fruit flavours. The remaining 15 per cent was barrel fermented to add complexity and texture.
We chose to use the yeast Maurivin Elegance to ferment this wine because of its ability to ferment well at low temperatures and
promote the development of enhanced fruit perfumes in varieties such as Chardonnay.
This Chardonnay was fermented and matured in new and old French oak with lees stirring. Lees stirring is a process where the lees
(residual yeast particles) rest in barrel with the wine which promotes an appealing yeasty aroma and flavour.

Customer Reviews

  • Beautiful balance

    This has gorgeously generous texture, beautifully balanced by Stathbogie Ranges zippy, zesty, mineral character. Lovely. Appropriately enough, we enjoyed this with a creamy pasta sauce containing foraged ramsons ('wild garlic'), mushrooms, walnuts and bacon lardons. An absolutely delicious combination.
