Vinification: 

Only a small amount of still Chardonnay was made in 2019. A greater proportion was used in sparkling wine production as the cooler ripening ment it was best suited for this. The grapes were pressed, cool fermented, 60% in stainless steel and 40% oak barrels. These were left to age for 5 months after which they were blended and bottled in the Spring of 2020. 

Winemakers notes: 

Just a small amount of Chardonnay was suitable for still winemaking due to high acidity levels. This Chardonnay is delicate and crisp, showing very good balance and gentle apple and lemongrass. The oak influence is very subtle as the barrels used were 3rd fill or older. This Chardonnay is perfect on a warm summers day, or with light nibbles.
