Sam Miranda Chardonnay 2017

The Wine
Estate grown and made! A cooler season allowed for a longer ripening yet maintained the natural acidity in the fruit at harvest. Transferred to French oak hogsheads where the natural yeast present completed fermentation. Left on lees for 6 months filtered and bottled. A classic natural cool climate chardonnay that will evolve in the bottle over the next 6-8 years

Winemaking
Transferred to French Oak hogsheads (300L) the natural yeast present completed fermentation. The wine was kept on lees for 6 months with regular lees stiring before being filtered and bottled in August 2017

Viticulture
Arguably the best known white variety which can be grown in a wide range of climates with the best examples coming from the cooler regions of the world. Sourced from a our Myrrhee vineyard in the heart of the King Valley. Harvested in the cool of the night in late February to retain the fresh acidity and primary fruit flavours.
