2014 Wild Chardonnay: The 2014 spring was cool and dry and developed into a warm summer with a cool autumn. Harvested at the same time as the 2013 Chardonnay, and was allowed to commence ferment on bulk pulp from indigenous microflora. After 24 hours tank fermentation the ‘wild’ ferment was transferred to New and Older French barriques and lees stirred weekly for 12 months. Peach kernel and grapefruit Dulce de leche, poached stone fruit and hazlenut on the nose. This chardonnay has a thread of hazlenut and kernel that carries onto lime. A seamless palate with texture that draws out the character of the nose with pear and dried lime.
