Geelong , VictoriaVintage:
2018 By Farr The GC Chardonnay
The wine has an amazing smoothness and calmness that stretches the length of the palate, surrounded with textured fruit and mineral elements.
The fruit is hand-picked then whole-bunch pressed in the winery. All the solids are collected and chilled before being put to barrel, which are 50 per cent new French oak.
A natural fermentation followed by a small amount of stirring helps start malolactic fermentation.
More than 8 years of fine tuning the style of wine that these vineyards are producing a complete chardonnay.
