Garagiste - Merricks Chardonnay 2018
Winemaking: From Merricks Grove vineyard where grey sandy loams are marbled with red ironstone. Hand picked and sorted, whole bunch pressed. Natural primary fermentation on high solids and partial malolactic fermentation. Matured on lees for nine months before bottling.
Nose: Smokey stone fruit, hints of brown butter and oysters.
Palate: Layered and textural. Matchsticks, funk, peach, citrus, cashews and apple pie. A grapefruit/lime intensity with more savoury lactic flavours.
Our Notes: Hi diddly ho, Neighboreeno! Fine wine made by Mr Flanders! Wild, yet sophisticated.
