Murdoch Hill Tilbury chardonnay

Attractive, rich and poised wine

Lifted with lime, white flowers supported with a wet stone and nutty complex character. Citrus, green apple and grapefruit driven on palate with a mineral textural element supported by lively acidity and structure.

The hand picked grapes were part whole berry & whole bunch pressed, due to the natural balance of the fruit. No acidification was required before fermentation in older French oak. Partial malolactic fermentation was allowed with a touch of lees stirring to add complexity and  depth whilst being careful to keep the wine focused to display the unique qualities of the vineyard.

From a selection of vineyards, predominately from a high altitude vineyard in the Piccadilly Valley. The remaining fruit is sourced from the Lobethal districts.

The elevation (450-550m) in this cool climate coupled with a range of aspects provides naturally high acidity with a depth of fruit to produce a refined elegant style of Chardonnay.
