Notes from JB:
100% Chardonnay from Matt Rohrlach organically farmed & Certified vineyard in Williamstown. The Vines thrives on Loamy soil over red & yellow clay on undulating hills at the foot of the Hale Conservation Park. The Chardonnay has been all hand picked at optimum phenolic ripeness & whole bunched tipped into a stainless steel tank & enclosed to undergo carbonic maceration for about a week till the pressure in CO2 really pick up. Foot stomped to progressively extract the juice out of the berries & feed the yeast. The tank is then completely sealed up at the end of the primary fermentation and kept closed for seven weeks. The must has been pressed in a horizontal screw press quite oxidatively before heading to old seasoned French barriques which were filled to 80% & un-topped for the full length of élevage of seven month. As a result the barriques have seen the formation of a yeast veil on top of the wine with a slight influence on its aromatic & its alcohol content. Bottled on site in our Basket Range winery without fining nor filtration.
