Caledonia Australis Chardonnay 2022
Bright, light yellow gold
The nose opens with subtle and complex aromas of grilled nuts, bread-crust, and ripe stone fruit.
The palate shows the power of a strong season with lots of fruit weight intertwined with a fresh grapey acidity that takes time to emerge from the mass of fruit and creamy lees character.
After fermentation the wine was left on full lees unsulfured till late the following spring. Most barrels began spontaneous malo-lactic fermentation. After a 20 month elevage, the wine was then lightly sulphured, racked, stabilized and bottled.
