Hans Herzog Chardonnay

Cracka Review

We picked our Chardonnay on the 30th of March 2009 at a tiny low yield of just 630g per vine. Defined by tremendously concentrated, ripe fruit flavours balanced by a sturdy structure, rich texture and great complexity. The epitome of elegance.

After gentle whole bunch pressing, the wine was transferred to 500 litre oak puncheons for an initial wild yeast fermentation followed by a secondary, malolactic fermentation. The wine was then left to age on its fine lees, with regularly stirring, for a period of 14 months.

An excellent match to steak béarnaise or fine, rich fish and seafood dishes.

Angus Hughson (2006 Vintage) says
This is a refined and perfectly proportioned Chardonnay very much in the style of Burgundy. Aromatically it is a little shy for the moment with citrus and nutty nuances tempered by perfectly balanced French oak. However in the mouth multiple layers of tightly wound fruit are guided by taut acidity to a fabulous finish
