Top Notch producer, Vintage and fruit. This is all class!

Hand-harvested fruit was gently pressed and fermented with indigenous yeast in French oak 500 litre puncheons. The wild yeast ferments help add complexity and texture. Malo-lactic fermentation was encouraged to soften acidity and give further richness. The wine received 11 months barrel aging then a further 4 months in tank on lees

Fruit flavours are in the cool to moderate spectrum of citrus, white flowers, ripe grapefruit and melon. The style is mid-weight with elegant oak nicely tucked in, providing texture and lingering flavours of cashew, roasted almond and gun flint.

The structure has a tight shape with the finesse and concentration that are hallmarks of Trinity Hill Chardonnay. It displays delicacy but richness and the beautifully linear acidity makes it a fantastic match with food.
