2014 YABBY LAKE SINGLE VINEYARD CHARDONNAY 

THE SEASON

The 2014 season was marked by a cool and windy spring, setting us up for reduced yields. A warm and dry summer prevailed, producing wines with pronounced intensity. Overall, crops were below average due to small bunches and berry sizes – a fact which also delivered fruit of exceptional intensity of flavour. Another vintage of excellent quality, just a little less quantity.

CLONES

40% Mendoza (Blocks 1 & 6), 30% P58 Clone (Block 1), 10% B95 (Block 7), 10% B96 (Block 7), 10% B97 (Block 7).

WINEMAKING

Each parcel of chardonnay was carefully handpicked between 27 February and 5 March, in pristine condition. Every parcel was handled separately in the winery, with minimal intervention. The chardonnay was crushed, pressed and transferred with solids, into tight grain 500L French oak puncheons (20% new) to undergo natural fermentation. It was then left to mature on lees for 11 months, without malolatic fermentation proceeding, until bottling in February 2015. 

TASTING NOTE

A pristine, pure and intense aroma with classic notes of citrus blossom and grapefruit pith. The palate is fine with great poise and concentration of flavour.  Tightly wound together with a precise minerality, the wine has beautiful line and length.

Optimum drinking - 2019-2026
