2018 Little Reddie SYR Bannockburn
Notes from Patrick Underwood - he makes the wines:
A super classy, generous style of Chardonnay made with patience and without messing. Preserved lemon and honey, lovely richness unfolding nicely with some air. Super comforting stuff. From Bannockburn Vineyards, responsible for some of Australia's great Chardonnays. Grown by Lucas Grigsby with Matt Holmes. Picked early, on phenolics and flavour. Destemmed and gently pressed to settle in tank, then fermented in old puncheon and one second-pass hogshead. Racked after summer to tank for a further six months.
