VINEYARD & WINEMAKING

The 2020 fruit, harvested in three parcels on 12th, 13th and 14th February 2020, was chilled overnight and then fermented in 25% new and 75% one year old French oak barriques. The chardonnay barrels were lees stirred weekly for 5 months and matured in barrel for a total of eight months before being bottled in October 2020.


THE WINE

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 spice characters. The wine is bright and mouth filling with a tight backbone and a long lingering finish.

I’m not a “woody” Chardonnay fan so usually steer clear of them all together - however, I was pleasantly surprised. This Chardonnay isn’t too woody/oaky and is dry but pleasant. I had it on a winters night snuggled by the fire with a nice mushroom risotto - a match made in winters heaven. This Chardonnay is still fruity but definitely one for those who like a quite dry white. Overall very pleasant

Crisp and light in flavour, citrus undertones. Really enjoyed drinking this wine and paired lovely with the fish we were eating.

A very lightly oaked Chardonnay that is crisp and dry with lots of flavours in the mix. A good accompaniment for white fish or chicken.

The nose and palate is consistent here; citrus notes reflect the balanced acidity, which brings good length on the finish. Oak influence is quite subtle but definitely there, and rounds out the mouthfeel just enough to prevent this from being too sharp. Overall a bright and cheerful wine, which should keep all but the most butter obsessed Chardonnay drinks happy, particularly at this price point.

This was a truly satisfying wine, I have lamented the veer to light, astringent chardonnay making whilst not liking the very oaky, heavy style of the past. This wine beautifully treads the middle ground yielding a fruit-filled wine in which oak is submerged and resulting in a light style with a creamy mouth feel.

This is a bloody good Chardonnay! I'd normally choose a GS Riesling... but I'm glad I gave this a go. Just the right amount of 'oakiness'.

My family and friends favourite Singlefile chardonnay. Reliable and very well priced year in, year out. The 2019 is a tad more astringent on the front palate (think apricot just before it’s fully ripe) but it has a smooth and flavoursome finish, thanks to the generous time spent in high quality French oak. Highly recommended. Singlefile make several very fine Chardonnays but this one is without doubt the best value.
