2020 Sandalford Estate Reserve Chardonnay

2020 Sandalford Estate Reserve Chardonnay

Textured, Savoury

Margaret River

A tightly structured wine full of stone fruit, citrus and cashew flavours. The French oak is beautifully integrated, adding layers to both the flavour and mouthfeel of the wine. This texture is complemented with bright, fresh acidity which leads to a wonderful length on the finish. Cellaring for up to 10 years will provide greater complexity and richness for those who like a toasty bottle aged style.

Winemaker comments

Winemaker Notes
This wine is made from 100% Estate grown Chardonnay. The fruit was destemmed before gentle pressing to tank. The free run juice portion was transferred to French oak barriques for fermentation (25% new, balance seasoned oak) utilising a specialised Burgundian Saccharomyces yeast isolate. The wine remained in barrel on ferment lees for 8 months prior to blending, stabilisation, filtration and bottling.

Vintage Conditions

Vineyard Notes
2020 was a vintage like no other. Whilst a global pandemic changed the way people lived their lives, Margaret River experienced a near perfect vintage. The preceding Spring growing season was warmer than average resulting in earlier bud burst and grape development. Grape yields were lower than average which led to one of the earliest harvests on record. The near perfect growing season allowed the winemakers to harvest fruit at optimal flavour and sugar ripeness. The fruit for this Chardonnay was machine picked in early February.
