Tasting Note

Peach blossom, orange peel, struck flint and a hint of vanilla on the nose. A mineral-led approach is followed by nectarine flesh, dried apricot and white peach underscored by a fresh, lively acidity, more linear frame and complexity from oatmeal, peat whisky and green apple skins. Fabulous length of flavour and depth of fruit intensity is further enhanced with a rich texture and spicy oak nuances.

Product Information

Winemaker

Harvest took place under blue skies in February and through to early March. The net result is the wines achieved steady phenolic ripeness, have respectable natural acidity and the drier year has given plenty of intense fruit flavours.

Winemaking

The grapes were handpicked and then whole-bunch pressed with half the juice was gravity-flowed directly to French oak barrels.The unclarified juice has neither enzymes nor yeast added. 70% of the juice underwent a natural fermentation until dry whilst the rest used cultured yeast. No MLF was encouraged. Chardonnay spent an average of 8 months on its fermentation lees which were periodically stirred to enable yeast autolysis - that creamy, oatmeal mouth feel component.

Food Recommendation

Fish pie, pasta in a clam sauce or pan-seared scallops with a lemon cream or lemon and thyme Roasted free range chicken.
