2021 Carbonic Chardonnay
Notes from team Borachio...
Below are notes taken, after running out of the shower to jot down thoughts about this wine. We could embellish, but you get the drift, yeah?
• Tropical Berocca-esque golden hues
• Terrigal beach 2004, seaweed on the beach • Golden Pash, tropical juice
• Pine lime, set me off
• Roll down the skillion, grass in your hair
100% whole bunch carbonic Chardonnay. 14 days locked in a tank, then pressed gently to another to finish fermentation, then to barrel for a long rest. Reductive and tight, this wine has a Chardonnay core. It's tropical elements enhanced through carbonic fermentation. A nice cut of acidity to keeps it all together. We’ve had this with SPICY AF food during vintage and it kept pace. Feels like day 3, or even 5, is the window for this one, but live your life. Don’t serve too cold. Your standard gross-red-wine temp works best and a firm decant doesn’t hurt either.
