    The  Moss Wood Chardonnay 2017 begins with lifted fruit aromas of peach, lime and quince with fragrant orange blossom notes. Behind this is a rich background of roasted nuts, caramel, cheese and soft oak, leaning towards cinnamon and toasty notes, almost toasted hot cross buns. This brightness is also reflected on the palate where generous peach and grapefruit flavours mesh with crisp acidity, full body and a firm tannin to give great length and mouthfeel. Light to medium straw hue, with green tints. Bright condition.

    All the fruit was hand-picked, whole bunch pressed and then the juice was settled in stainless steel tank for 48 hours.  Once clarified, it was seeded with a mixture of different yeast cultures and racked to wood for the primary and malolactic fermentations.  All the barrels were 228 litre French oak and 50% were new. After 16 months, all the barrels were racked and blended in stainless steel.  Fining trials were carried out and the wine was fined with bentonite for protein stability and no other treatments were necessary.
