Classic Cowra Chardonnay, from vines we planted in September 1997, and which have been grown organically and biodynamically since Day One.
In 2022, the grapes were night harvested and gently pressed, cold settled, racked, and fermented cool (15-17degrees C) using wild yeast.
We encourage the wine to go through natural malolactic fermentation, so the finished wine is stable with no sulfites added. The result is a more “old world” style with a creamy acidity and a slight butteriness, rather than a hard acid line of “new world” sulfited whites. The wine is hand bottled in our winery without fining, cold stabilisation or filtration to “polish it”.
This is natural wine. There is a chance that it will have sediment from lees, tartrates or proteins that settle to the bottom of the bottle. Treat it like a cloudy beer and roll the bottle before serving to best enjoy this authentic Chardonnay.
