Left of Centre Chardonnay

Cracka Review

The Chardonnay was sourced from two premium vineyards in the Hunter Valley. The fruit was hand picked, and whole bunch pressed. It was then cold settled for two days with minimal finings prior to ferment. The wine was then left on yeast lees for nine months, to build texture and create a smooth silky palate.

This is a modern style of chardonnay, no malolactic fermentation and a judicious use of French oak. The result is a fruit driven wine that shows butterscotch, white peach and passionfruit up front followed by vanillin, toast and oak with a hint of struck match. On the palate there is a silkiness from the yeast lees and lingering acid. This wine is great now and will age for the medium term.

Alcohol: 12.0 %
