2018 Singlefile Great Southern Chardonnay
VINEYARD & WINEMAKING
The 2018 fruit, harvested on 4th and 5th March 2018, was chilled overnight and then fermented in 28% new and 72% one year old French oak barriques. The barrels were lees stirred for 5 months and matured in barrel for a total of eight months before being bottled in December 2018.
This wine has bright aromas of citrus and white peach with a subtle flint character. The palate displays a modern styled chardonnay of citrus zest and stone fruit with the use of new oak providing subtle spices. The wine is bright and mouth filling with a tight backbone and a long lingering finish.
