2022 Chardonnay Western Victoria
This year we commence planting the remaining acreage at Eastern Peake with mostly Chardonnay (Clones B76 & P58) & a little parcle of Pinot Noir. Cover crops are in ready to be turned back into the earth with compost. an excting journey ahead.
In 2021 a decision was made to produce an "Introductory level" chardonnay from both our own & sourced fruit (from vineyards that go under the Latta range). This wine is again made up from 5 vineyards (Eastern Peake, Mount Coghill, Two Mile Hill, Pirrepoint & Moonambel).
All individual sites were whole bunched pressed, fermented naturally in 300L hogs heads & 228L (30% new) barriques, racked after 12 months élevage to tank, always full malo, no fining or filtering, bottled 4 months later from racking. A small amount of sulphur post malo & pre bottling.
