Kooyong Faultline Chardonnay 2018

Country: Australia
Region: Victoria
Grapes: Grape Chardonnay 100
Tasting Note:
Pure, beguiling Chardonnay from Australia's Mornington
Peninsula, a heady blend of white nectarines, white flowers,
lime juice and crystallized ginger.
Winemaking:
The grapes were gently whole-bunch pressed directly into
French oak barriques (of which 15% were new), where
fermentation occurred spontaneously with ambient yeasts.
After fermentation the wine was aged on lees (without
battonage) for 11 months, with the only racking occurring
directly prior to bottling. The wine was bottled without fining
and with minimal filtration
Vineyard :
Faultline, the largest block at Kooyong, is planted
predominantly to Chardonnay in an area where the soils are
characterised by a friable dark brown loamy clay. Adjacent
to the Farrago block to the West, the Faultline block is more
gently sloping. The block is bounded by a geological fault
that runs along the south-western end, beyond which the
soil becomes quite poorly drained. Before this fault,
however, the soils are well drained and high in organic
matter. The Chardonnay from the Faultline block is rich and
full, defined by a generosity of texture while still supported
by Kooyong’s inherent minerality.
Food matching:
Enjoy alongside roast chicken with preserved lemon or
thyme-crusted pork.
