2019 Combes Chirney Journeys
Notes from Oscar, who makes the booze:
Chirney Journeys is a Blanc de Blanc which is a little bit more fun but still varietally Chardonnay. Lemon curd, pith and chalk, on the palate it's zesty and fresh - the lees give it a little textural element.
Picked on taste just as fruit was coming through, was then whole pressed very, very gently. Settled in tank and then racked to barrel once it had just started fermenting, a mix of hogs and barriques. Wine was then topped and left to settle for a few weeks. Then racked to stainless before and juice added back. No So2.
