2016 Reserve Chardonnay

Racked directly to barrel after whole-bunch pressing, this wine is the purest expression of TarraWarra Chardonnay. Made without yeast or acid addition, the fruit batches from each block are kept entirely separate in barrel over the 10 months in oak. It is crossflow filtered without fining before bottling at the Estate.

Aromas of white stone fruits reflect the warmer year, the palate balanced between finesse, length and creamy texture. The acid line drives through with a persistent and long finish.

A wine to drink and enjoy now or cellar for 10 or more years.

Site Selection: The heritage blocks of B, D and G have a north-west aspect and represent a perfect site for Chardonnay. The three blocks have deep soils and a cool micro-climate.

Vintage Notes: The season leading up to the 2016 harvest saw warmer conditions through Spring and up to Christmas, bringing ripening forward. January and February were similar to 2015, with cool nights during ripening allowed for retention of acid and fine flavour development.


Reviews:

LESTER JESBERG, Winewise, October 2018
This is an excellent expression of the variety, reflecting faintly funky barrel ferment inputs. The palate is creamy and long, with well balanced firmness and low-key oak. ★★★★☆
