Chardonnay (Oaked) 2018 SOLD OUT

This single vineyard, Estate-grown Chardonnay displays baked apple and ripe melon aromas enhanced by subtle toasty oak characteristics. The generous mid palate combines stone fruit, cashew and a hint of creaminess. A backbone of crunchy green apple acidity gives the wine freshness and a lingering finish. Drinking at its peak now until 2025 but the brave and patient will be rewarded. 

Winemaker's Notes

Woody Nook Wines Chardonnay 2018 was made from 3.8 tonnes of Estate grown Chardonnay, hand-picked on the 13th February, 2018 at 12.3° baumé.  Destemmed, crushed and pressed to tank for floatation to remove the juice from the grape solids.   The juice was then inoculated with X16 yeast before transferring to 11 French oak barriques (50% new Saury Lumiere), the balance second-use (Nadalie Marsannay & Colber) for barrel fermentation lasting twenty days.   The Chardonnay was matured for eight months on lees with weekly stirring (batonage) to increase mouthfeel and complexity before filtration and bottling in December 2018.   247 cases were produced.
