2018 Sea Urchin Chardonnay
A long winter and cool summer allowed gentle ripening of white grape varieties in 2018. This produced excellent conditions for the slow ripening of perfectly balanced Chardonnay. The fruit showed the perfect sugar to tartaric and malic acid ratio which expressed the full gamut of fruit flavours expected in this variety.
The fruit was machine harvested at night and pressed in the cool early morning to retain freshness and varietal character. Cool fermentation occurred in stainless steel tanks.
Aromas of white peach and fresh lime precede a palate of ripe stone fruits. This wine has a succulent mouth-feel of bright, fresh flavours with grapefruit and lemon zest creating a well balanced finish.
Compatible with poultry, white meat and most seafood dishes, the generous fruit weight also makes this wine capable of standing up to robust, spicy flavours.
