2017 Tokar Estate Chardonnay

Vineyard
Our Chardonnay block was established in 2007 by grafting two acres of the gentle North facing Shiraz block (planted 1998) with the Chardonnay clone I10V1. Half is cane pruned, whilst the other is spur pruned.

Winemaking
The grapes for this wine were picked in two lots, five days apart. The first pick provides the citrus backbone whilst the riper stone fruit character comes from the later harvest. The juice was fermented by wild yeasts in 500L French oak puncheons and a portion was encouraged to go through malolactic fermentation. After five months I’m barrel, the wine was blended in stainless steel and prepared for bottling whilst lively and fresh.

Sensory Analysis
Brilliant clarity with white gold with green tinge. The dense and complex nose shows aromas of white peach, yogurt, bran meal and a wet stone minerality. The palate is plump with stone fruit balanced by crunchy green apple and racy lime acidity. The intensity is high and the length is long, matching this wine’s ageability.
