Description
BlendPercent100% Chardonnay
CellarGrapes were crushed and the juice allowed skin contact with partial oxidation for up to 8 hours.  Legacy states that the berries should be yellow and sun kissed when it is fully ripe. The juice is fermented with wild yeasts in 83% stainless steel tanks and 17% 3rd and 4th fill French oak barrels without proper settling. The juice is stirred often during fermentation to lift the lees.

Time spent on lees:  3 - 4 months
FoodSuggestThis Chardonnay will complement spicy Thai grill vegetables or even a well matured cheddar cheese on Melba toast with honey dumplings.
Harvest

Chardonnay grapes are harvested between 22° - 23° Balling.

VarietyChardonnay
VineyardSoil types vary from sandy clay to decomposed granite. The skin contact is done without any sulphur additions to allow partial oxidation of phenols contributing to orange flavour formation during fermentation - a technique known as hyperoxygenation used by winemakers on Chardonnay and Colombard.
