CHARDONNAY 2019 – YARRA VALLEY
This wine is a traditional Yarra Valley expression of the varietal – an elegant, well balanced wine with very fine tannins.
Hand harvested 3 March 2019.
Winemaking wise, direct press and fermentation in barrels. 50 % new barrels. No acid was needed thanks to the special soils at Rosehill Vineyard and our Vineyard Manager Bruce’s hands on approach. Full malolactic fermentation and ageing on lees for 10 months.
The result is a wine that displays characteristics of lemon zest, enveloped with hazelnut and almonds. Great texture, and long length thanks to its lovely natural acidity.
No filtration at bottling. Minimal sulphur.
Total production: 750 bottles
