Description

VINEYARDS

The 2021 Reserve Chardonnay is made with fruit from the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River, the clone is 100% Gin Gin.

SEASON

Rains during the month of January helped to freshen up the vineyard and top our dams and water tanks. Fortunately these rains were followed by sunny dry conditions and we found minimal disease pressure in the vineyard, which was mitigated with a little crop thinning. Yields have returned to normal cropping levels.

WINEMAKING

The fruit is hand picked early in the morning to retain freshness, then placed into the cool-room to chill further overnight. The next morning, the whole bunches are tipped into the press. The free run juice is gently pressed off to a stainless steel holding tank and allowed to settle naturally overnight. The slightly cloudy juice is then racked to a mixture of new, second and third use French oak barrels.

Fermentation occurs spontaneously and completed via wild fermentation. Once primary fermentation is concluded the wine is sulfured to ensure freshness and that secondary fermentation does not take place.

The wine is aged for nine months in barrel, with occasional stirring of lees to gain complexity and texture prior to bottling.
