Home Chardonnay 2013

The coldest spring in ten years meant more time than usual frost fighting in the vineyard. However once the show weekend threshold past we experienced one of the best summers in recent years which allowed some beach time recovery and good conditions for flowering and fruit set. Whole bunch pressed, no settling, wild fermentation in 228L and 500L tight grained French casks (1-5 year old, 15% new) and maturation on lees.

Light or white gold with a slight green hue. A bouquet of lime, citrus peel, honey and spiced apple with white mineral and hazelnut aroma. The broad, dense palate is balanced with fine and crisp minerality making the wine rich and salivating. Flavours of rich nectarine, lime, and baked apple. Powerful but delicate.
