2018 Milton Park Chardonnay
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.
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.
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.
