“Fruit was all handpicked and meticulously hand sorted – both on the tractor (into bins) and back at the winery prior to processing (into press).
Keeping it simple, we chilled our fruit overnight before whole bunch pressing each vineyard parcel to tank and settling for 48 hours. Juice was then run by gravity direct to new (12%) and old 500L puncheons for fermentation.
Our 2019 Rouleur Chardonnay is loaded with white fleshed peach, honeydew melon and just squeezed citrus. There?s oatmeal and fine spiced oak underneath a mostly fruitful nose. The palate has breadth of flavour – it?s moreish, stone fruit driven but tightly wound
with a core of grapefruit tang.”
