Nugan Estate ‘SV Drover’s Hut’ Chardonnay 2017
Pale straw in appearance, with lively aromas of peach and nectarine with a touch of oak in the background. Followed by a bright fruit driven palate of stone fruit, citrus and lightly toasted oak, balanced with a crisp acidity on the finish.
Selected fruit was crushed, destemmed and bag pressed before undergoing slow, cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine was matured in seasoned French oak barrels for a further 12 months to add complexity and enhance fruit and oak integration, prior to final blending and bottling.
