Peter Lehmann HV Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Eden Valley South Australia
A splendid high altitude effort, expressing fully the uniqueness of Chardonnay grown to the lofty terroirs of Eden Valley. Grapes are sourced from choice independent grower vineyards, tucked way up high in the eastern Barossa ranges. The region is particularly cool, perched atop steep slopes and on lean rocky soils, planted to clones of Chardonnay which can thrive in the challenging mesoclimes. Yields here are normally low, producing outstanding white wines with a measure of delicacy and purity of fruit.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$263.00
An early harvest Chardonnay style, fashioned to a combination of old and new world winemaking techniques, followed by a term of cool barrel maturation, achieving a delicate wine with remarkable balance of fruit, preserving the divinely pristine persona of the vineyard. Determining the optimal date for picking is essential to constructing a wine of balance and finesse. Following harvest and the crush, batches are drained directly into French oak hogsheads set in a cool environment allowing natural yeasts present on the grapes to initiate ferment. Upon completion, the wines are treated to partial malolactic, barrels are topped up and stirred regularly for eight months prior to stabilisation and bottling.
Fine green/ gold tinge to the colour. Lovely nose of cut stonefruits and lemon preserve, hawthorn and ripe nashi. A lovely balance of fruit complexity on the palate has been derived from rich barrel ferments and battonage. H&V will acquire a deeper gold colour and become richer in flavour as it evolves. Today it represents a very ready to appreciate Chardonnay alongside chicken roast and rabbit terrines.
