Netherwood Chardonnay 2013
The coldest spring in ten years meant more time than usual frost fighting in the Netherwood 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, fermentation with yeast propagated from a vineyard starter, in a 228L and 500L tight grained old French casks and maturation on lees.
White gold hue. A bouquet of white flowers, grapefruit hazelnut and almond. The pallet is supple and broad with a sandy and fresh minerality. A unique and rare wine from a very unique vineyard.
