2018 Milton Park Chardonnay (Dozen)
Milton Park is home to the Thorn-Clarke winery in South Australia, owned and operated by the Clarke family with six generations of grape growing and winemaking heritage. Our Milton Park range of wines is made from grapes sourced from our own vineyards and other select vineyard sites in South Australia, this allows consistent quality year to year and ensures the range is very competitively priced.
The wine has a pale golden colour. The wine has notes peach and stonefruit aromas with a hint of pineapple. The palate has rich peach characters. The mid palate is soft and creamy.
A warm dry spring led to into similarly dry conditions in through the summer period. The warm weather brought harvest on in mid February. Cooler nights with warm days helped the fruit to develop good flavour and balance.
Crushed, de-stemmed and then pressed using a membrane press. The ferment was kept slow and cool to retain all the natural flavours and aromatic qualities. The juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at a cool temperature to retain all the natural flavours and aromatic qualities. The wine was blended, clarified, filtered and then bottled soon afterwards so the wine was a true expression of the grape/terroir from which it was made.
