Deep Woods 2018 Estate Chardonnay

Deep Woods 2018 Estate Chardonnay

2018 estate chardonnay

93 Points 93




 Pale straw with flashes of green.


Bright notes of peach and nectarine balanced by layers of flint and struck match.  


A wine with tremendous depth of ripe stone fruit flavours and vibrant natural acidity. A hint of oak-driven character adds length and structure.  


This wine may be enjoyed on release but will find further complexity over three to six years from vintage.

2018 was a beautiful, mild vintage with very limited heat spikes during ripening. Chardonnay grapes were harvested in early to mid-February, which encouraged expressive aromas, concentrated flavours and lovely acid retention.


The majority of the fruit for this wine was handpicked, with a proportion wild fermented in oak barrels, 20% of which were new, for three months. The remaining parcels of fruit were kept on lees, with wild fermentation occurring in stainless steel tanks. From there, 50% of the final blend underwent malolactic fermentation before bottling.
