Askerne Estate Chardonnay 2022 750ml

WINEMAKING NOTES

The fruit for this wine is a blend of Mendoza (36%), Clone 15 (29%), Clone 95 (14%), Clone 548 (13%) and Clone 1066 (8%) grown on the sandy silt soils of the lower terrace of the Askerne vineyard. Hand-picked and whole bunch pressed, the juice was transferred to barrel for fermentation. The barrels were a mixture of both wild and inoculated ferments and completed 100% malolactic post ferment.  The wine was subsequently aged for 10 months with lees stirring to add volume and complexity. The final blend has a 25% new French oak component.
