2017 Singlefile Single Vineyard Denmark Family Reserve Chardonnay
Winemakers: Coby Ladwig & Patrick Corbett (Co-Founder)
With aromas of intense grapefruit and white peach, a concentration of citrus and stone fruit on the palate and lingering mouth-filling finish, this wine balances fruit, oak and acidity.
What defines your style of chardonnay?
Our vineyard ripens very slowly while maintaining its natural acidity. We determine the ideal picking time to produce cool-climate chardonnay giving a wellbalanced wine with power and finesse that traverses modern and traditional styles.
What techniques do you use for this wine?
After pressing, the wine spent eight months in half new and half second-use French oak, with lees stirring at weekly intervals during the first six months, followed by partial malolactic fermentation (about 20 per cent) to develop mouthfeel.
