SKU: 2016 Yabby Lake Chard - Magnum

From our museum cellar, this 'limited release' magnum of a classic vintage of Yabby Lake Single Vineyard Chardonnay is presented in a beautiful gift box.

The 2016 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. 


Winemaker Notes
Each parcel of chardonnay was carefully handpicked on 13 February (Blocks 1 & 4) and 15 February (Block 6), 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 Feb 2017.
Tasting Notes
Characteristic pristine, pure and intense aroma with classic notes of citrus blossom and grapefruit pith. The palate is fine and complex, with great poise and concentration of flavour. Tightly wound together with a precise minerality, the wine has beautiful line and length. Optimum drinking until 2030.
