2019 SINGLE BLOCK C CHARDONNAY

$90.00 inc GST

Planted by the Farr’s & the Weir families in 1979 to the p58 clone on it’s own roots. This 40th anniversary milestone vintage was whole bunch pressed, cold settled and put to 75% new oak where it matured for 10 months with minimal battonage and partial malolactic fermentation.
Very pale straw yellow in appearance.

The lifted bouquet swirls with jasmine, marzipan, Portuguese tart, struck match and toasted oak. The vibrant palate is packed with an orchard of stone fruit (most notably white peach), cantaloupe, brioche and crunchy minerality. While this Chardonnay graces the full length of the palate in retains remarkable austerity with abundant richness and length. Enjoy it at any moment over the next 14 years+ with clam chowder or mushroom and truffle risotto.
