Winemaking Notes

Chardonnay is generally recognised as the world’s greatest white variety, a versatile grape that produces fine wines in many different wine regions. The Blue Pyrenees Chardonnay 2017 has been created from 3 different outstanding Chardonnay fruit parcels selected from mature vineyard blocks. The 2016/2017 growing season was the coolest and wettest for many years, then a warm dry Autumn to finish, which produced healthy vine canopies, above average crops, and plenty of grape berry flavour development. Harvesting at app 13.0* Beaume sugar level helped capture ripe flavours and the balanced but complex minerally style Chardonnay, that is famous in many regions around the world. Fifty per cent of this wine was matured for nine months in used French oak barriques, so traditional and contemporary techniques were used to craft this wine, notably natural fermentation, barrel fermentation and yeast lees stirring or battonage, which has added both complexity and richness to the vineyard derived fruit flavours. The result is a medium-bodied crisp dry white wine with the classic complex flavour profile sought in great Chardonnays.

Sam Kim

Elegant and pristine, the delightfully expressed bouquet shows white flesh nectarine, rockmelon, lemon zest and subtle vanilla characters, followed by a beautifully rounded palate that’s creamy and supple. It’s harmonious and textured with a lengthy smooth finish.
