Evans Tate Redbrook Reserve Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia
Chardonnay vines fare exceptionally well in Margaret River, as appropriate shading yields intensely flavoured fruit with excellent natural acidity. The afternoon sea breezes typical of the region, cap the daytime temperatures and produce cool summer nights for which Margaret River is renowned. The balmy climes encourage ripening of the white varieties as flavour ripeness is achieved at lower Baumes with excellent acid retention. Grapes must be picked from midnight to 7am and are processed separately without delay to preserve quality and freshness.
Available in cases of 6
Case of 6
$329.50
Chardonnay is selectively hand picked across separate blocks on different dates, over the course of two or three hours as flavours peak. Parcels are chilled to 5°C and passed through an airbag press into new French oak 500L oak puncheons, only the finest quality pressings are retained. Barrels are vinified through the action of wild indigenous yeast, imparting great depth of flavour and aromatic complexity. Upon completion, barrels are topped up and treated to a term of maturation, regularly lees stirred to develop mouthfeel and texture. The best barrels are identified and assembled into the final wine, followed by an extended term of bottle age under the Evans & Tate cellars before release.
Mid golden straw hue. A pure expression of Margaret River, delicate layers of complexity that slowly build and evolve, lemons and lime, white peach and melon aromas provide primary fruit intensity with savoury elements of toast, slate and dried herb. Citrus flavours provide great freshness with stonefruit and melon flavours imparting concentration and fruit intensity. The barrel ferments achieve lovely textures and complex savoury notes.
