Platinum Chardonnay

Platinum Chardonnay

Incredible depth and rich texture in this vintage of Platinum Chardonnay showcases an exquisite mouthfeel with balanced fruit and acidity. Hints of lime leaf, peach blossom and lemongrass in the nose lead into a silky palate with flavours of candied lemon, dry honeycomb and vanilla bean, all touched with the delectable impression of hardened crème brûlée.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The fruit for this wine is from our own estate grown Naramata Bench fruit and with a small portion from our select growers. The vineyards are cropped at 3 tons per acre to encourage flavour concentration. The fruit from our vineyards retain lively acidity to complement ripe fruit flavours. Different leaf removal strategies were employed to give a variety of bunch exposure times and subsequent flavour development.
Production Notes
The fruit is hand harvested, allowed to cool overnight. Grapes are either whole cluster pressed or de-stemmed and cold soaked for 12 – 16 hours and then pressed. Free and press run juices are kept separate. 106 cases produced.
Winemaker Notes
The Platinum Chardonnay is 100% fermented in French oak (51% new barrels and puncheons) using a variety of yeasts, to create a complexity of flavours and aromatic esters. The wine is aged on lees for 16 months and stirred regularly to build texture and mouthfeel.
