Glenwood Grand Duc Chardonnay 2015


Grapes were picked at 24.9°B and whole-bunch pressed to 1.4 bars of pressure. The juice was left to settle for two days and racked to barrel. Using only wild yeast, fermentation occurred over a one month period. The wine spent 24 months on the lees in 100% new, 300l and 500l French oak barrels.

This wine is rich and opulent, with an intense dried peach and apricot character. Drink now or within 7 to 12 years from vintage.

Only 2600 bottles produced.

Vintage Another drought year with lower night temperatures resulting in the fruit ripening slowly allowing the development of small bunches with highly concentrated flavours.
