Glenwood Grand Duc Chardonnay 2019


Grapes were picked at 23.6°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 11 day period. The wine spent 24 months on the lees in 100% new, 300l French oak barrels.

Light straw in colour. Refined citrus and orange peel nose. Creamy vanilla and very subdued orange peel on the palate with a buttery finish. Creamy and lengthy palate with a delicate and refined structure. Drink now or within 7 to 12 years from vintage. Pairs well with creamy or spicy dishes and perfect with white roasts. Excels with any seafood dish.

Only 800 bottles produced.
