Greywacke Chardonnay

€37.95
Out of stock
A bright fragrance of Clementine orange, fresh limes and a honeyed floral sweetness mingle with rich almond butter and flinty, mealy savouriness reminiscent of freshly mown meadow hay. The palate is smooth and textural with lemon and grapefruit top notes wound into a warm marmalade brioche.

The majority of the fruit was sourced from the upper Brancott Valley with the balance coming from its lower reaches. Typical of this sub-region, the wind-blown loess soils are comprised of clay-loams with varying degrees of gravel content. Both vineyards are planted with the low-yielding Mendoza clone, known for its propensity for millerandage (small and normal sized berries in the same bunch) and were trained on a two-cane VSP trellis.

The two vineyards were hand-picked separately at high ripeness levels and whole bunch pressed using very low maceration press cycles. The resulting juice was settled and racked to French oak barriques (20% new). The juice was allowed to undergo spontaneous indigenous yeast fermentation, the final phase continuing for many months. The wine received occasional lees stirring and underwent a complete malolactic fermentation. It was transferred out of oak after 18 months and bottled in December 2012.
