Wine Maker Notes
Fruit for the 2021 Reserve Chardonnay is grown predominately in the Southern Valleys sub-region. 2021 was a unique vintage, one of the earliest and shortest on record. The growing season was the third in a series of drought vintages, the stress on the vines was compounded by a huge wind run. The combination of some early frost events and a poor flowering resulted in lower yields and smaller bunches than usual. This, combined with the dry conditions, has meant that disease levels are incredibly low this year, resulting in better flavours and pristine fruit.
After the Chardonnay fruit was harvested, the fruit was pressed and the juice fermented with 25% new oak. A secondary malolactic fermentation has softened the wine and added extra texture and complexity to the palate.
