Region: Goulburn Valley Australia
Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
Best Consumed: 2020 - 2030
The fruit for the Laneway Chardonnay was grown in our vineyards on the banks of the Murray River. This region has long, baking, sunny days and mild evening temperatures - perfect for the growing of great Chardonnay. The grapes were harvested during the cool of the night to maintain fruit freshness. The wine was barrel fermented in various parcels, with extended lees contact to build structure yet retain good fruit balance.
Wine Harvest Notes
Another season by the joys and challenges that Mother Nature continually throws our way! 2018 is a very good year for quality, the season was warm and dry and we were kept on our toes as once we started picking everything ripened up pretty quickly. Intense flavours came in late this year and we held off picking to allow maximum flavour . The whites are all fruit forward, with lovely fresh acidity whilst the reds have excellent colour and flavour to match. This vintage is a beauty and subsequently we have made some cracking wines in 2018.
This wine is made with food in mind. Served in forward trending bars and cafes, this is a versatile, medium bodied wine that is perfect with modern street food, char-grilled calamari, spaghetti marinara or anything from the sea.
