Tasting Notes

colour

Pale gold, highlighted by golden tints, bright and shiny.

aroma

Perfumed and nutty, the nose is redolent of juicy white peaches and honey with a creamy cashew-like oak. 

palate

The palate is wonderfully fresh yet expressive, with ripe stone fruits drawn together by fine natural acidity. The acid then tightens and lengthens the back palate with the subtle Burgundy oak playing a supportive role. The 2020 Moonambel Chardonnay is an exemplary example of modern chardonnay from a unique site. 

cellaring

Enjoy this wine over the next two to three years.

Technical

vintage

The 2020 vintage was led by good winter rain. A heatwave during early summer was then followed by very cool, dry conditions, which led to low yields and superbly concentrated fruit across the board.

winemaking

The fruit for this wine was handpicked and whole bunch pressed. The cloudy juice was then transferred directly to a mixture of new and one and two year old French oak puncheons (500L) and barriques (228L).

Fermentation occurred spontaneously with wild yeast over the next three weeks. Post-ferment the barrels where topped and the wine matured in place for the next nine months before careful barrel selection and bottling.
