Elgee Park Family Reserve Chardonnay 2015
17th March 2015
Shows nectarines, nuts and creamed honey on the nose.
The elegant palate exhibits intense stone fruit and citrus overtones. The middle palate softens with creamy, spicy oak characters on the exceptional balanced finish.
2015 Was a mild growing season, dry & cool with an excellent sunny & warm January, February & March. Intensely perfumed and balanced grapes will result in some super wines.
The fruit was perfectly ripe, Following careful handpicking, the grapes were delivered to the winery, destemmed, and whole bunch pressed, settled and then racked to barrel and inoculated. The wine was fermented in French oak barrels with regular lees stirring. Partial malolactic fermentation was completed in spring. The wine had 11 months in French oak barriques.
