2016 The Long Road Chardonnay

2016 The Long Road Chardonnay

$28.00

A perfect vintage across all regions and varieties, long even-ripening conditions produced beautiful fruity and structural wines for our Long Road labels,  with excellent flavours and natural acidity.

Tasting notes:

Delightfully lifted nose, showing white flowers and orange blossom with hints of almonds and nutmeg.

Classic Tumbarumba-acidity which is propped up by the use of select French oak, leading to some spice on a rich and full palate. Long lean natural acidity.  

Winemaking:

Whole bunch-pressed directly to a selection of French oak barriques and stainless steel tank. Alcoholic fermentation with a selected yeast. 12 months in barrels on full lees and in stainless steel tank on fine lees with a select portion allowed to go through partial malolactic fermentation. The wine was then fined, cold stabilized and sterile filtered before bottling.
