Glenwood Vigneron’s Selection 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 100% wild yeast, fermentation occurred over a 14 day period. The wine spent 11 months on the lees in 50% new French oak and 50% second fill barrels. Wine was further aged in stainless steel tanks for 7 months.

Light yellow-gold. Stone fruit and citrus on the nose. Full and rich on the palate with lots of dried fruit and melon. A well-balanced wine with many layers and a lengthy finish. Complex, rich and refined.

Vintage A low canopy allowed optimal sunlight penetration. Minimal irrigation was used. The fruit ripened slowly allowing the development of small bunches with highly concentrated flavours.
