Trofeo Estate Amphora Chardonnay
This Chardonnay has been 100% fermented and aged in Florentine Terracotta Amphorae, resulting in a wine that fully expresses purity of fruit. Aromas reminiscent of lemons and limes dominate on approach. On the palate, subtle caramel notes mingle with fresh citrus, creating a vibrant wine that is supported by a creamy textured mouthfeel. Drink now or cellar for up to 7 years.
Handpicked and whole bunch pressed, the juice was settled for one day, then racked to Terracotta Amphorae where fermentation took place, 60% of which was wild. The wine was aged in Terracotta Amphorae for 10 months accompanied with periodic stirring of the lees to enhance mouthfeel texture and complexity.
