Even Keel Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay

Brand - Even Keel
Region - Mornington Peninsula
Year - 15
 
Vineyard
The wine is a blend of Mill Hill road block vineyard (80%) and Myers Road Merricks North (20%), Mornington Peninsula.
 
Wine Making
The fruit is handpicked and whole bunched pressed using a gentle champagne press cycle. No enzymes or sulphur are used at the press tray and the juice is oxidatively handled to get rid of oxidative enzymes early on in the winemaking process. The wine is left at ambient or if needed chilled to 15 degrees and transferred to old French oak barrel with full solids and minimal sulphur is added. The wine is allowed to ferment using wild yeast and left unsulfured until the following summer when in most cases the wine completes full malo- lactic fermentation. A minimal amount of sulphur is added and left in barrel for a total of 10 months where it is racked off gross lees and transferred to tank. The resulting wine is bottled using no finings and minimal filtration.
 
Tasting Notes
Focused fresh lemon and lemon pith with a toasty nutmeg base. Supreme consistency and balance with fine acidity. Subtle elegance and great poise.
