2022 Carrodus Chardonnay

Medal One
Medal Two

A pure fruit expression of Chardonnay, hints of wet stone and white flesh stone fruits. The texture combining some citrus pith with a chalkiness. A delicious and compact young wine that will evolve with time.

97 Points - Huon Hooke, The Real Review


Hand harvested, the fruit was chilled overnight and whole bunch pressed with the juice run directly to barrel, oxidatively handled, no additions except being inoculated with a selected yeast. The yeast strain chosen for its expression of fruit purity. Fermentation and maturation in one French oak, 600L demi-muid, left on yeast lees until bottling
