Exodus Chardonnay 2017
- Availability: Out Of Stock
Exodus is a Single Vineyard Chardonnay sourced from the well known cool-climate wine region of Eden Valley.
Pale green in colour with pure, clean and powerful fruit intensity. It has rich melon, nectarine and some more complex smoky hints while secondary aromatics of nutty oak glide through without being overly obvious. Every character plays their role creating a really brilliantly fresh vibrant and appealing bouquet. As you would expect, lively citrus opens you up to a world filled with grapefruit, nectarine and melon. The developing flavours are fig, honey and a kiss of oak and lees. Tightly focused in its youth but the depth of flavour, complexity and acid will ensure aging potential.
Picked in February the fruit was harvested in small batches to minimise the fruit losses and ensure only the finest parcels were selected. The wine underwent fermentation with 12% receiving oak fermentation with frequent lees stirring which developed more complexity. The two parcels were kept separated this vintage with only the 12% receiving oak maturation in second and third use French oak barrels then selected barrels were blended together with unoaked portions and bottled to ensure only the finest wine made the final blend.
