Cricket Flat 2015 Chardonnay


Cricket Flat 2015 Chardonnay

VINEYARD WINEMAKING ANALYSIS - 2015 was a stand out growing season for our Chardonnay. Our small 30 Ha patch of Chardonnay vines were lovingly hand pruned and tended to in the winter months. All in all, the result was a smaller crop with concentrated varietal characters. To ensure that the grapes are harvested in a way that preserves all the hard work we put into the vineyard, we use a state of the art Pellenc Selectiv Harvester which de-stems the grapes in the vineyard leaving only the berries.

The Williams fruit was transferred to the 100% new French oak barriques, and then approximately two thirds of the barells were inoculated to instigate malolatic fermentation before the alcohol forment, to tighten the structure of the wine. During the processs, the barrels were stored in a cold room at 2 degrees to extend the fermentation and enhance complexity inthe finished wine. Following fermentation, the wine remained on lees for 9 months, with constant stirring to add more dimensions to the finished Chardonnay.

2015 Coonawarra Chardonnay tasting note

In the glass the wine has beautiful pale straw colours with light green hues. The nose is elegant with vibrant notes of white nectarine and peach and a subtle hint of toasted brioche in the background. The palate is structured with concentrated bright stone fruit notes alongside hints of lemon blossom and biscotti, with a refreshing crisp finish.
