2016 Willow Creek Chardonnay 375ml

2016 Willow Creek Chardonnay 375ml

A kind, warm growing season, and moderate crops that ripened very early, gave us pristine fruit and a very compressed harvest period. The 2016 wines all have an abundance of fruit flavour and generosity in structure.

The hand harvested fruit was whole bunch pressed to retain the pristine fruit characters and minimise phenolic extraction. The juice was then transferred to French oak barrels, 20% of which were new, for fermentation and maturation on lees, with monthly stirring, for 11 months, prior to bottling in February 2017.

Tasting Notes
Colour: Pale golden straw Bouquet: Intense lemon aromas are framed by some lovely bottle development, grilled almonds, some honey, and toast. Palate: The palate reflects the bouquet with persistent citrus flavours, balanced by still crisp acidity, but really getting into the top gears of power and depth of flavour. Complex, full-flavoured and satisfying, reflecting the wonderful 2016 vintage – the small format makes this ideal drinking for the next year or two.
