2017 Wightwick Vineyard Ballarat Chardonnay
$30.00 – $300.00
From the cool 2017 vintage, this is quite a fine, tight and elegant first Chardonnay release for us. The grapes were hand picked and whole bunch pressed to tank. The free-run and pressing juices were combined and wild fermentation commenced in tank on full juice solids. About a third of the way through fermentation, the juice was transferred to 2-5 year old French oak hogsheads. Keen to observe the fruit characteristics from the vineyard, no new oak was used in this vintage.
Bottled January 2018. Only 100 dozen produced. 12.5 % Alc/Vol
