Winemaker Comments:

The Y Series Chardonnay grapes were picked across the flavour spectrum, from lively citrus flavours such as lemons and limes to peach and tropical fruits. We picked in this way to ensure that when blended, the wine was balanced with flavour and natural acidity. Pressed straight to fermentation, the juice was managed using a “hands off” approach. Wild yeasts initiated and completed fermentation and once finished the wine was left on lees to build complexity.

Tasting Notes:

Pale straw with green hues. The aromatics show paw paw
and mango with blossom notes and sweet spice. The wine
has a savoury edge with flinty notes from the wild ferment. The palate is fine and creamy with a touch of nuttiness, evolving with zingy citrus notes, fresh mango and cream. A refreshing, lip smacking acidity gives this wine lovely length and the finish is savoury and textural. Try with pan fried haloumi with lemon and parsley, or chickpea, zucchini and carrot fritters with a green mango salad.
