Thomas Legacy Chardonnay 2019



Hand harvested mid to late March. Whole bunch pressed to tank, warmed for spontaneous fermentation (on full grape solids) then racked to seasoned and new French oak barriques for a wild alcoholic fermentation. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel. Blended after 11 months in barrel and estate bottled.

Tasting notes: Yellow gold in appearance. Aromas and flavours of stuck-match, white florals, yellow citrus, white peach, nectarine, nougat, and spicy oak. The mouthfeel is plush and has the texture of clay; the finish has a wonderful coastal saline taste and feel.
