Our first “natively fermented” wine. Fresh and soft with creamy lemon curd, peach and vanilla flavours.
Have you ever tried a natively fermented wine? What does this even mean?
Natively fermented wine is when the yeast that is naturally found on the grapes in the vineyard are encouraged and utilised by the winemaker to ferment the juice into wine. This can often end up with dirty, unsavoury characters in the wine if done incorrectly, however, we have used all our experience and modern technology to cleanly and successfully ferment our 2022 Chardonnay this year using only the yeast found on the grapes.
Why did we do a native ferment? We did it because we wanted to push the boundaries a little and to bring more complexity and texture to our Chardonnay.
Soft and creamy but with a fresh zing of acidity.
White peach, pineapple, nectarine and citrus aromas, intertwined with notes of roasted almonds, brie, vanilla and cream.
