The 2019 H Chardonnay has aromas of pink grapefruit, orange blossom and brioche. The palate is medium-bodied with flavors of lemon zest, white peach and nutmeg spice, complexed by subtle French oak nuances. It finishes fresh, with a balanced texture and acidity.
The fruit for this wine is sourced from Lenswood in the Adelaide Hills. Harvested in Mid-March, only the free-run portion of the juice was sent to the barrel for fermentation. It was matured for eight months with some gentle lees stirring in 100% French oak, 25% new puncheons and a combination of 75% one-and-two-year puncheons.
