Mount Macleod Chardonnay 2022
Pale straw with a green tinge
Sweetly spiced citrus and light tropical aromas, lychees and hints of juicy confectionary lemon and barley
Fresh and bright with vibrantly concentrated primary fruit and a creamy generosity that is pulled into line by balanced lively acidity
The fruit for this wine was hand and machine harvested in small batches as the season unfolded. Flavour windows opened and closed and we grabbed portions here and there. The majority of fruit was harvested between 13.1 and 13.6 baume. Each batch was pressed and lightly settled before being racked to barrels as a cloudy juice. Fermentation was allowed to begin naturally and the barrels then underwent fermentation at there own pace. After fermentation the wine was left on full lees unsulfured. Most barrels began spontaneous malo-lactic fermentation that was allowed to proceed to completeness. After an 18 month elevage, the wine was then racked and bottled.
