2018 Rocky Road Chardonnay
Immediately all the hallmarks of Margaret River Chardonnay leap from the glass: pink grapefruit, nashi pears and blossom abound.
The palate delivers both freshness and flavour with a saline acidity complementing an abundance of white flesh nectarine and fresh citrus peel, whilst subtle toasted almonds linger on the finish. Fermentation and aging for 8 months on fine lees in a combination of French oak barriques and large format casks provide depth and palate length to this flavourful wine.
This Chardonnay fruit was harvested in the cool of the night. Fruit was pressed without sulphur to 2800 L 1-5 year old French oak casks, where the juice underwent wild fermentation.
