Ross Hill Maya Chardonnay

Cracka Value Rating

Cracka Review

Native to Central America, the Maya people believe that everything is cyclic in nature. In ancient times they created several calendars including one of 365 days, made up of 18 months of 20 days each. NASA certified it as .00000001 accurate to the atomic clock calendar, so it only needs to be adjusted one day every 180,000 years. On the other 5 days the Mayans celebrated and a party always needs a good Chardy. The Ross Hill Chardonnay is a funky, yet serious wine with an added degree of complexity that comes from being fermented with wild yeast.

Winemaker's Notes

From the treasured home block at Griffin Road, planted in 1996, altitude 750 metres.
This fine, delicate chardonnay was partially fermented by wild yeasts in French oak, and partially in tank.
Cool climate regional influences have produced a wine with texture, balance and harmony.
Named for Maya Challoner, Grandson of founders Peter and Terri Robson.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
From 1996 plantings on the estate; part wild yeast-fermented in French oak, part stainless steel-fermented; as might be expected, tight, incisive and minerally, still at the start of its life.
