2018 Emma Chardonnay

$35.00

The chardonnay grapes for this wine were hand-picked and whole bunch pressed straight to new and used French barriques, where it went through 100% wild fermentation. This starts to explain the spice and complexity of the aromas that waft out of the glass. There is grilled yellow peach, white nectarine, guava and exotic cooking spices. Backing it all is a saline/green apple crunchy spine. The palate is exactly as promised, complex, textural and layered. The wine spent 11 months on lees (unstirred) prior to bottling, which has contributed a ‘fresh baked bread’, cheesecloth character to the edges of the fruit: another layer of flavour and spice.
