Moates Lane 2019 Chardonnay

COLOUR

Clear, bright, pale lemon.

NOSE

Rich, clean semi pronounced aromas of honeydew melon, quince and subtle
toasty hazelnut.

PALATE

Clean rich medium bodied flavours of pears and ripe grapefruit intertwined
with a soft french toast background with a moderate finish of a toasty soft
lemon meringue.

WINEMAKING

The grapes were machine harvested, crushed, destemmed and pressed into.
Fermentation took place over 12 days with selected yeast to enhance both
full flavour development and some complexity. The wine was kept on lees
contact for a further 2 months before being racked and stabilized (protein and
tartrate), carefully blended and prepared for bottling.

FOOD PAIRING

Cheese and nibbles.

VINTAGE NOTES

Cool conditions in early spring enabled a subsequent long growing season. A
warm dry summer subsided into ideal cooler autumn conditions prior to
harvest.
