Woolshed Chardonnay 2018

Producer: Wingara Wine Group
Vintage: 2018
Production Area: Red Cliffs north west Victoria
Type: White Table Wine
Alcohol: 13.5
Grape Varieties: Chardonnay-100
Color: Pale straw yellow.
Aroma: With peach, nectarine and pineapple aromas, and hints of loquat and nutmeg, there’s plenty to enjoy in this wine
Taste: Rich and creamy, with ripe fruit-salad flavours, filling the mouth with impressions of peach, custard-apple, cream and pie crust.
Cellaring Potential: 1-3yrs.
Food Matching: Extremely well suited to a bright modern dishes like warm chicken salad or lightly spiced Thai dishes.
Vinification: Some of the juices were fermented with selected yeast strains and others were allowed to ferment naturally, relying entirely on the wild populations of yeast. All ferments were left for three months on yeast lees and stirred to optimise their post ferment interaction, adding a silky palate-feel. The philosophy has been to select good fruit at the right time and then proceed with caution and sensitivity, allowing the wine to result largely from the potential within the grapes.
Aging: Oak maturation was limited to only three months.
