L. Viscek Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

Tasting Notes

Our 2019 Viscek Vineyard Chardonnay is light straw in the glass. The nose is fragrant and complex with notes of honeysuckle, lemon custard, bartlett pear, baking spice and a touch of stony minerality. On the palate it is medium-bodied with flavours of lemon and green apple with refreshing acidity. The finish is long with savoury flavours and a touch of lingering acidity and warmth.

Drink now at cool room temperature or hold for the short-to-medium term for added complexities. Pair with savoury dishes rich in cream or butter.

WINEMAKING NOTES

Our fourth vintage of Chardonnay from our neighbour Lado Viscek’s meticulously farmed vineyard! After careful hand-harvesting, the grapes were full-cluster pressed. No sorting was required as the grapes were in pristine condition. The must was then transferred to a mix of 228L, 400L and 500L French oak where it underwent alcoholic and full malolactic fermentation. Following this, the wine was kept in contact with its fine lees for 12 months prior to being transferred to stainless steel tanks for an additional 6 months of rest before bottling in February 2021, following light fining and filtration.
