Millbrook Limited Release Chardonnay

VINTAGE 2012 REGION Margaret River 100% VARIETY Chardonnay 100%

VINTAGE NOTES

The 2012 vintage in Western Australia was superb for Chardonnay with a warm, dry summer. The 2012 Chardonnay was produced from fruit sourced from ten-year-old vineyards in Margaret River. The fruit was handpicked and chilled before whole-cluster pressing. The resultant juice was filled directly to barrel, with no clarifying, to maintain a light concentration of grape solids during fermentation to enhance the creamy and nutty texture of the wine. Natural fermentation was used on 100% of the barrels. The Chardonnay was left on full lees for nine months with battonage weekly for the first three months and then monthly for six months. The wine was aged in oak for nine months – 75% new French oak with the balance in one-year-old French oak. Each of the barrels was then treated as an individual wine and blended to an outstanding quality level.
