Eightfold Chardonnay 2023
Medium straw with pronounced green tinges.
Mineral and limey wth some ripe melon brioche and subtle lime pith.
Is concentrated and fine with a creamy texture. The vibrant acidity provides excellent structure and balance to the creamy juicy mid palate.
The wine is sourced from the Allan Rock and Wylco vineyards plus a small percentage from the Wills Domain vineyard blocks seven and thirteen. Harvested in the cool of the morning, the fruit was gently destemmed and pressed and settled overnight before being racked to barrel and allowed to ferment naturally. The wine remained on lees in barrel, with minimal batonage for nine months before being racked fined filtered and bottled. To preserve the mineral limey style of our Eightfold Chardonnay only a small percentage went through malo lactic.
Poached / steamed marron, crayfish shellfish, rich fish salmon tuna cod, creamy pasta.
