2017 Riorret – Lusatia Park Chardonnay 750mL
$40.00 inc. GST
Light to medium colour with green edge. Minerally, delicate, classic florals, fine. Tightly structured, brioche, hazelnut, super dry and a classic briny finish. Hand picked, chilled, hand sorted and whole bunch pressed. Juice is allowed to settle for about an hour then racked to barrel to complete fermentation using natural yeast. The wine completes malolactic fermentation to reduce the prominence of primary fruit characters and is then stirred intermittently until Spring. In December the wine is gravity racked, then bottled in early February.
Alc/Vol: 12.7%, pH: 3.16, TA: 6.6 g/L
The wine will continue to develop complexity and interest with good cellaring for 3-5 years.
