Description

Winemaking Notes:

  • The grapes for this Chardonnay are sourced from the Winmark Vineyard, formerly Pooles Rock, in the Broke Fordwich sub-region of the Hunter Valley.

  • The fruit was hand harvested in the cool of the morning to preserve quality and was immediately whole-bunch pressed.

  • The cloudy juice was transferred to new French oak barrels where fermentation took place.

  • The wine was then left in oak for eight months with regular lees stirring to add texture and complexity.

  • The barrels were then blended, lightly fined, filtered and bottled.

 

Palate: This wine shows powerful stone-fruit characters with oak-derived flinty, toasted notes and a long, crisp finish.

Alcohol: 13.2% v/v

Upcoming Vintage: Winmark is producing something special, a Burgundian rootstock-style chardonnay, lighter than the traditional Australian vintages.

Launch: October 2019
