Delicate oak character, lovely maturity to the fruit, fine freshness and beautiful overall balance have developed this wine into a delicious, succulent, whole. Fabulous! Drink now and over the next 12-18 months.

Winemaking

The grapes were hand harvested during the mornings of the first and second week of April at 24º brix. They were carefully transported to the winery and then underwent a gentle whole cluster pressing. The juice was chilled down to 8º C and then gravity clarified. The must was fermented with several yeasts selections in French oak barrels, 25% of them new. After fermentation was finished, the 100% blend was sulphated in order to avoid malolactic fermentation and to keep the natural acidity of the wine. Battonage was done twice a week while the wine was in barrels, 8 months, for the right integration of fruit and oak aromas and flavours.

Food Recomendation

Perfect with Indian food but also pairs very well with white meats, fish and cheeses.

Press

  • It didn't go through malolactic and fermented in stainless steel with neutral yeasts. Once the fermentation has been completed in its third part, it's moved to barrels and 20% to concrete eggs to finish fermentation and an élevage of ten months with bâtonnage. They look for crunchy acidity to have fresh wines. Here the granite is noticeable in the palate. The barrel is noticeable in the nose but less than in the past; they have reduced drastically the amount of new oak used, and they introduced the concrete for part of the wine with this vintage. There are plenty of ripe citric notes, with varietal typicity with a super tasty, mineral, almost salty finish. Textbook example of the grape and the place at a very good price. Scored 90/100

Customer Reviews

  • The 'new' new world Chardonnay!

    On the nose and palate its a wonderful fruit cocktail but the brilliant thing is that its governed by perfect brightness and acidity that lifts it and keeps it all in check.
    Nectarine, peach, grapefruit and lemon with a lovely hint of honey and a lengthy mineral finish. Superb.
