2018 Cobaw Ridge Skin Contact Chardonnay
Super amazing juice here.
These notes come from the Distributor - Sebastian Crowther MS:
100% estate grown, biodynamic and organically grown fruit. 50% of the Chardonnay was left on skins for 3 weeks before being pressed off and left in old barrels for two years. The other portion was held on skins for an astonishing 737 days prior to being blended with the first component. Zero additions, fining or filtration. Tiny SO2 addition just prior to bottling. One of the finest example I’ve taste of skin contact Chardonnay in Australia - super pure, fresh with clean clear mineral character. It's a matrix of spice and fruits. Gingerbread, marzipan, white pepper, clove and turmeric. The fruit unravels with mango, papaya, orange zest and pink guava. Silky and fine on the palate, with only the finest tannins holding shape. Amazing length as always from this me diligent producer. Bravo team Cobaw!
