2013 Cornelius Sutton Vineyard Chardonnay
Complex and alluring nose of struck match stick, peach and nectarine fruits with creamy background as well as nutty oak. The palate is rich and full with white peach and nectarine fruits flowing through to a creamy mid-palate and cedar oak finish.
The wine has great minerality and structure which delivers a powerful wine which will age for 10 to 15 years in bottle.
Handpicked at optimal ripeness, whole bunch pressed with the best juice run to barrel. Fermentation took place over 10 days by wild yeast. Lees stirring occurred every 3 to 4 weeks and spent 18 months on lees. It was then blended, fined, filtered and bottled. 13.0% ABV.
