2019 The Bartondale Chardonnay

2019 The Bartondale Chardonnay


Our old block Chardonnay is cane pruned each year. We encourage late budburst and flowering each year to get the vines through the mid spring storms we have each year. The fruit is hand harvested in the early part of the morning and stored in a cool room overnight, with Greg sleeping along side them, to ensure the fruit is cold for processing the next day.



The day after the harvest, the chilled fruit is hand loaded into a press and the juice is transferred directly into new and used French Oak barriques. The barriques are hand loaded into a refrigerated area where spontaneous wild fermentation is encouraged, followed by 12 months of barrel maturation. During this time, the wine was continuously stirred and topped until barrel selection and bottling.

Colour : A brilliant light straw

Aroma : Intensely aromatic with freshly squeezed lemon and lime overlaying freshly baked turron. This aroma is complexed with some toasty notes and almond meal.

Flavour : A flavoursome Chardonnay. The palate is fresh with lemon and lime leading the way. This wine has many layers of flavour underlying the bright fruits – the savoury almond meal adds definition and the fresh citrus acidity keeps it all nice and fresh. This wine is all about line and length. A long finish of toasty butterscotch is complimented with some great texture.
