2019 Lansdowne Wine Super Happy Chardonnay
Notes from the makers...
Hand-picked in early March 2019 (during an extremely condensed 3 week harvest for all varieties!). It was whole bunch pressed and underwent 24 hour natural ferment before being transferred to matured oak barriques (approx 10% new). Gentle, and infrequent lees stirring occurred during it’s 8 months in barrel. 2019 was low-yielding but had good growing conditions despite the coldest September on record, one of the wettest Novembers and a heat-wave in late January. While it sat there peacefully maturing away in barrel it narrowly escaped the Cudlee Creek bushfires just down the road. This is a lucky and very happy chardonnay.
