Cairnmuir Terraces EBM Chardonnay 2019 750ml
A selection of the Winemaker's best barrels
The Carrick EBM Chardonnay is so named for its ‘Extended Barrel Maturation’, which imparts further character, structure and flavor to this wine. Released after at least 1 year of bottle age, it is complex, with an earthy, savoury tone.
Generous, intense and age-worthy, the EBM is well-suited for 10 years of cellaring. Pair with roasted white meats, buttery fish, or green vegetables.
The EBM is a blend of two different parcels from the Cairnmuir Terraces, the top terrace where we grow Clone 6 and the bottom where we have Mendoza. Amongst the 7 barrels none were new, they were blended after 12 months then returned to barrel for a further 6 months. The juice was fermented in oak with a daily battonage to assist the wild yeast.
"Stylish and refined, the wine shows nectarine, rockmelon, vanilla and roasted hazelnut characters with nuances of brioche and olive. It's concentrated and beautifully weighted with fleshy texture and juicy acidity, making it elegantly flavoursome and lingering." - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit -
