Jamiesons Run is named after the original property where Mildara Wines was established by the Chaffey brothers in 1888. Various fermentation techniques are used on individual parcels of Chardonnay to build complexity into the finished wine. Components are barrel fermented in a selection of French and American oak casks under temperature controlled conditions. Some parcels are tank fermented, others are vinified on solids, a portion underwent malolactic to soften the wine. Many of the barrel fermented parcels are aged under oak, treated to extended lees contact for added complexity. Oak maturation contributes to the bouquet and palate but the fruit remains in balance and up front.
