CHRISMONT Chardonnay 2021

CHRISMONT Chardonnay 2021

The crisp cool climate of King Valley is at the forefront of our estate Chardonnay that exudes buttery oak and all of the wonderful characters familiar to the palate of discerning and loyal Chardonnay drinkers.


TASTING NOTES
COLOUR: Straw to light gold.
AROMA: Nectarine, fig, and grapefruit aroma with roasted cashew and butterscotch.
PALATE: Bright with flavours of stone fruit, butterscotch, and a silky front palate texture with crisp acidity adding length and zest. 


WINEMAKER NOTES
“Fruit is harvested in early March when moderate acidity and the flavours of apple and melon are evident. The gently pressed free juice is then drained into new (30%) and older French oak hogsheads where it is allowed to spontaneously ferment. A proportion of the barrels also undergo malolactic fermentation, then matured for 10 months with batonage during the first few months. Blending and bottling takes place early in the New Year just before the next vintage is ready to be harvested.” Warren Proft, winemaker

FOOD PAIRING
