Wignalls Wines was established on the outskirts of the then Town of Albany in 1982, after extensive research and investigations into “Terroir” (Environmental factors creating wine quality) by our founder Dr Bill Wignall.

Description

Tasting notes

The complex ‘bouquet’ of this wine reveals a subtle minerality, blending in with fresh lemon and citrus aromatics, followed by discreet chariness and vanilla from the best French oak. Weekly traditional ‘batonnage’ (lees stirring) creates a creamy and multi-layered texture showing citrus and grapefruits on the palate, balanced by the refreshing natural acid on the finish. Malolactic fermentation was minimal.

Winemaker notes

Finesse and elegance are the main focus when crafting this old-block, ultra-low-cropping premium chardonnay. It’s fermented cool with cultured yeast and some wild yeast ferments in 50% new barrels (50%) and 50% aged barrels for nine months. It’s then blended and bottled, resulting in a unique style that complements lighter cuisines.

Vintage report

2019 was a warm and dry year for Chardonnay in Albany.
