Tasting Notes:

Pale straw in appearance, this wine displays vibrant aromas white stone fruit, entwined with grapefruit and ginger spice, leading to a palate with superfine acidity and superb balance.

Winemaker Notes:

Once ripe, the Chardonnay fruit was mechanically harvested in the cool of the night and delivered to Nugan Estate Winery, where the fruit was immediately destemmed, chilled, and pressed gently in our bag press. The resultant juice parcel was lightly clarified prior to inoculating fermentation on medium toasted premium French oak staves.  Following a 2-week fermentation and once dry, the vessels were topped and batonnaged monthly on yeast lees to build mouthfeel and complexity, before bottling in the coming months.
