Greystone Wines Erin's Chardonnay 2020 750ml

True to form, our Erin's 2020 bounds from the glass. Nectarine, wet chalk, and citrus fruits, heightened by fine oak smoke. Palate flows with ripeness of fruit, a subtle spice and refreshing salinity lingering long - Dom

VITICULTURIST’S NOTES

Erin's Chardonnay grows on our steepest and highest slopes, in limestone soils which impart a beautiful minerality and tension to the wine. The block is 100% Mendoza clone, which responds well to this terroir.2020 started with some difficult cool weather leading to small fruit set. Lovely hot summer gave us pristine clean bunches of fruit. Extensive leaf plucking and bunch thinning ensured balanced happy vines. Fantastic Autumn saw us achieve perfect ripeness whilst able to preserve fruit flavours and acidity. Truly fantastic vintage for growing Chardonnay. 

WINEMAKER’S NOTES

We hand picked our steepest block of Mendoza Chardonnay before a gentle whole-bunch pressing to tank without additions. We allowed the juice to settle overnight before we racked to French oak barrels for wild fermentation and full malolactic fermentation. The extended nature of fermentation brings not only richness to the wine but also layers and subtle complexity. Barrel ageing lasted 16 months before the wine was estate bottled without fining.
