2019 La Petite Mort Chardonnay

Regular price

This was an experiment in barrel format - size really does matter!
Although they fermented and aged it in a brand new, premium, French barrel, the oak influence is lessened because it was a great big puncheon (~500L) as opposed to the standard barrique (~225L). If you remember any of your high school geometry, you'll recall that as the diameter of a circle increases, the ratio of its perimeter decreases relative to the area - Less oak per litre, in other words! Gorgeous spicy, cedary french oak blends seamlessly with pithy, pink grapefruit and ripe tangelo notes in this bold, yet balanced, expression of newschool Australian Chardonnay.
