Armstead Estate Chardonnay 2018


Grown amongst the cool, southern granite hills of the Heathcote Faultline, our 2018 Chardonnay fruit was hand-picked in early March and taken straight to the winery for processing. The whole bunches were lightly pressed to promote freshness and then stored in old French oak Barriques for about 10 months before bottling in February 2019. This 2018 Charlotte Chardonnay exhibits crisp minerality and subtle French oak. Sixty percent of the Barriques were allowed to go through malolactic fermentation, enhancing buttery and vanilla undertones, with some held back to promote freshness and hints of acidity.

Harvest 4 March 2018, picked by hand.

Bottled February 2019.

Palate Pear and apple blossom, with mineral freshness and buttery undertones.

Food recommendation Soft cheese and seafood.

Drinking best 2019-2022.
