Winemakers Selection Chardonnay 2019 (Hunter Valley)

RRP: $35.00

This Chardonnay was hand picked off our 40 year old vines near the front gate of the Audrey Wilkinson Vineyard and lightly pressed to tank. In tank it was allowed to settle then racked to new, 1 and 2 year old French oak barrels and topped up with 4% lees to increase autolysis which contributes a creamy texture. Fermentation was undertaken and was allowed to warm up to 25°C to increase flinty-matchstick notes. The wine was then matured in oak for 7 months, then lightly fined with skim milk, stabilized, filtered and bottled under screw cap.

Additional Information
Vintage Conditions

The 2019 vintage will be regarded as a great vintage in the Hunter Valley. A dry winter was followed by good rainfall in spring and summer which set the vines up with healthy canopies.
The ripening period was consistently warm and dry
which resulted in yields that were slightly down but quality was very high. The white and red wines are full of flavour and will be highly sought after.
