CLASSIC CHARDONNAY
2021

Bouquet

Lifted crème brulee, amid white stonefruits of nectarine and white peach, with citrus lift.

PALATE

A rich and full flavoured palate of white peaches and cream, well balanced with subtle yeast and oak toast characters with a dash of spice complexity. Rich and round front palate with clean and luscious textural palate, which extends into a pleasantly lingering finish.

WINEMAKING

Harvested in the cool of the morning, one parcel of wine (80% of the blend) was barrel fermented on yeast lees for 6 months in predominately French barrels (40% new) to contribute to complexity, integration and richness. The second parcel (20% of the blend) was selected for their integral aromatics and elegance they displayed. The wine was racked off gross yeast lees after ferment and spent 6 months on fine yeast lees to add subtle toast characters and a dimension of palate weight. Both parcels were blended prior to bottling. No animal products used for fining or filtration. Vegan Friendly.
