The grapes grown to make the 2017 Chardonnay are the oldest on the farm being planted in 1994 on its own roots.


Produced from low yeilding Mendoza clone of Chardonnay, it was hand picked before being gently foot pressed in a traditional French basket press.
Fermentation occured naturally in barrel where it was left to mature in 6-7 year old neutral French oak barrels for 13 months.

We are proud to say this wine is unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulphur prior to bottling! 


Grown in 2016 - Harvested in 2017 - Matured in barrel until 2018 and finally bottled in July 2018 

 

Bottles produced: 289

12.5% ABV

 

  • Good to know

    'Fining' - is the addition of a small amount of protein to the wine such as bentonite (clay), isinglass (fish bladder, not even kidding) or egg whites. These proteins then bind to small particles already present in the wine, which eventually become sediment in the bottom of the barrel or tank.

    'Filtering' - The winemaker can push the wine through a medium, which will prevent any further particles (floaties) being present in the final wine. It is often used to clarify and brighten the visual appearance of a wine.

    Both of which are also used to remove any faults, off aromas or bacteria which may be present in the wine, but at the same time can strip colour, positive aromas, structure and complexities.
