2019 Sea Urchin Chardonnay
2019 can be considered as a challenging and labour intensive year. Cooler than average temperatures during spring and summer, coupled with reduced solar exposure and an increase in afternoon humidity during ripening made canopy management critical to prevent disease and optimise sun exposure.
A great year however for aromatic whites.
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.
