2019 Willow Creek Vineyard Chardonnay

2019 Willow Creek Vineyard Chardonnay

The exceptionally dry, warm growing season, then following summer and autumn during the ripening period meant the 2019 crop across all varieties was harvested early and with evident intensity of flavour and structure – a really exciting vintage across the whole region.

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 10 months prior to bottling in February 2020.

Tasting Notes
Colour: Pale straw. Bouquet: Shows typical citrus aromas, with a hint of savoury struck match and lightly toasted nuts adding complexity to the bouquet. Palate: Intense lemon and grapefruit pith flavours are complemented by the slightly nutty and creamy mid-palate generosity. Powerfully built but reined in with natural acidity.
