2016 Milton Park Chardonnay

Comments

The wine has a pale yellow colour. The wine has dominant peach aromas with a hint of pineapple juice on the nose. The palate has intense peach and pineapple characters. The mid palate is soft and creamy.

 

Vinification Notes

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.

Vintage Notes

A warm dry spring led to into similarly dry conditions in December and January.  The warm weather brought harvest on in the first week of February.  A couple of good rain events led to milder conditions slowed down the ripening and allowed the fruit to develop well.  Whites from 2016 show good flavour and balance.
