Glenwood Grand Duc Chardonnay 2020 – Pre-order


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 and 500l 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 1600 bottles produced.

Wine will be released on the 6th of December 2021.
