Ned Goodwin - Halliday's Wine Companion

A discreet chardonnay. Very subtle. Dried hay, toasted cashew, nougat, toasted hazelnut and a beam of leesy curd notes. This is almost bereft of obvious fruit references and all for the better, as far as I am concerned. Micro-vinifications in fine French oak constitute a chardonnay that should fill out over time, if not a bit thin as it stands.

Tasting Notes

Packed with flavour, depth and complexity this new world Chardonnay is sure to impress, especially when enjoyed with food. It’s made in limited quantities each year (90 dozen) and from only the highest quality fruit on our family estate. The palate offers melon and stone fruit and is perfectly rounded out by a fresh layer of acid.

Winemakers Note

Harvested on the 11th of March, the fruit was chilled and then gently pressed in our airbag press. Settled overnight, the slightly cloudy juice was transferred directly into a blend of new and seasoned French Oak barriques, and fermented wild, aiding the development of texture and complexity. On completion of primary fermentation the barrels were stirred sparingly over the first eight weeks, and a select few barrels went through partial malolactic fermentation. All barrels were matured for a further nine months prior to final blending
