Viticulturist Notes
The fruit for the Sunburnt Chardonnay was grown in our vineyards in the Goulburn Valley. 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
As a Winemaker, the challenges that each harvest brings never cease to amaze me. Just when you think you have an understanding of what's going on, another season hits, bringing with it yet another challenge and a completely new scenario. Early in the season in 2015 we had little rain and warm temperatures, leading to fast ripening of the grapes. Once temperatures cooled, things slowed down and we saw an increase in flavours and quality, resulting in 2015 being a great year for Chardonnay.
Food Recommendations
Great with anything from the sea! Think salt and pepper squid, freshly shucked oysters or char grilled chilli salmon with lime.
