Margaret River Wines, Western Australia
2014 Reserve Chardonnay
Hand Picked, whole bunch pressed, 80% wild yeast fermented and mlf in French barriques. High solids with weekly battonage. This wine has been designed to age and will evolve over the next 5-10 years. Tasting Notes: Ripe peach, grapefruit peel, and fig, with oatmeal and toffee, cashew and Brazil nut. A hint of toast combined with savoury notes from yeast autolysis, lanolin and a beautiful reductive flint note. Complexity!!!!! The palate combines all the above characters with a natural fullness and acidity, which perfectly balances the wine. The creamy structure and French oak enhances the very, very long finish.
